My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Latest physics hypothesis might blow your mind, but is well backed by the data
they test drugs to make sure they're better than a placebo but what they're missing is, if a placebo has some effectiveness, why don't we use it?

Re: 30* F drop?
No, you can create a 109 F environment when it's 109 F in the shade and 139 F in the sun
