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: Sheltered Camp
Cold air will often flow down a valley like a stream of cold air. Better to be at least 20 feet (?) above the low point. Sometimes it's good to be under tree when it's raining. Tree wi...

Re: YMMV...
Same here - I use Gutterman Sew All from local fabric store There are probably better threads out there but it doesn't make much difference

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Luci
I cut the plastic reflector off to save a little weight. Also, it didn't really add any functionality that was useful to me. I left on the plastic that made it waterproof.
