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: Long-term water usage in California
Interesting info. I think you chose the right career. No problem getting a job. Perfect timing. Yeah, conservation is cheaper than building a pipe from Oregon, Canada, or Mississippi : )

Re: Re: Never stand on end
if you want to kill bugs, and it's marginally warm enough (like 195 F) let it sit for 1 minute or a couple minutes with the lid on
