My Locale Pacific Northwest
About Me I'm a flatlander hick from southeast Texas who fell in love with the mountains after spending two summers in New Mexico and one in Colorado. I was mostly a dayhiker until my kids got old enough that I wasn't spending every spare minute at a game or recital. Now I get out for multiday trips 4-5 times a year. I like to keep moving, cover a lot of ground. Not big on lounging around, even if it's gorgeous. I don't like out-and-backs. There's just too much of Creation to see!

Re: Forecasts
"Both of your links look like they give temp forecasts for Packwood (elev. 1290') so I'm guessing that's not going to tell me much about what's going on at 7K, but should warn ...

Re: Permethrin and Pertex
Why would you want to treat a down jacket? I've seen some big skeeters in my day, but none with a proboscis that long.

Re: OK...more Goat Rocks questions.
There's lots to look at in the Rocks, but if you've got limited time, I'd prefer the viewpoint north on the PCT to Goat Lake. But with two nights to work with, I don't see why you ...

Re: Re: PNW: Do Bears Break into Cars????
Lest it didn't come through above: We currently have very few problem bears in the PNW and want to keep it that way. Please don't leave food-filled vehicles at our remote trailheads.

Re: Camping too close for comfort
* I really like solitude and quiet, so I try to put distance between me and others. * If it's a crowded place, I don't mind being closeish to others, assuming they're considerate. O...

Re: Sleeping pad inside or out
It also has to do with how you sleep. Back sleepers can probably go either way, but as a rotisserie side sleeper I have to curl up semi-fetal, bringing the bag with me. There's no way I could...

Re: nice options
I'm another Vivo devotee. I fully expect the pair I'm using to last a decade, but I went ahead and bought a second pair as defense against their discontinuation. "In the mountains ...
