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: Geigerrig water from air
Maybe you can use the water to produce electricity using cold fusion - solution to world energy problem/global warming - we can finally shut down the global warming thread in chaff

Re: flawed
I think any increases more than inflation are a problem. It's now too big a share of the economy. Any more is a killer. That would be 2% increase per year. Better if it was stable for a few...

Re: Re: Platypus big zip w/ sawyer mini inline - back flushing question
