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: Best tent stake for Cascades/PNW
I use Ti shepard hooks I have one steel stake. Sometimes I'll use it to make a hole, then pull it out and put in a Ti shepard hook. Steel weighs twice as much but it's stronger. And...

Re: REI Return Policy - Abuse of policy or not?
Take it to REI, tell them you used it but it's too heavy, ask them if they'll refund your money.

Re: GENERALLY vs ABSOLUTELY
