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: America the Troublemaker?
I'm not going to totally disagree with you about Libya. At least we didn't have a protracted war with U.S. "boots on the ground" which is expensive for us in blood and money, a...

Isobutane boils at 10 F or so, so upright is only good down to 20 F or so. Somebody suggested turning canister upside down, filling bottom with water, putting on plastic lid, turning upright and...
