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.

I think you would find you agree with Jennifer much more than 5% of the time. I don't mind talking politics or economics while hiking. Better when it's someone I disagree with a lot. K...

Re: Beber has Anti-Ursid Properties
I wonder if some sounds would repel bears - loud or whatever. That would be lighter than bear spray. And would last longer time. Someone experiment with this please

Re: Re: Re: These is a hole in your hat
If you have a hood, then a cap is fine. Actually, your hood should have a brim on the front. Usually, for a trip, it's either warm/sunny/hat weather or cold/rainy/hood weather. Occasionally ...

Re: These is a hole in your hat
brim around sides keeps sun off ears and neck caps and visors not so good although you could cut the top off your hat and make a visor like thing with brim all the way around
