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: App
If you had an app to play Egyptian ratscrew, it would work? Would each person need a smart phone? If you didn't have enough human players, you could have bot players? It wouldn't let you...

Re: Looking for Mini Playing cards that are decent quality
There must be some smart phone app? That wouldn't weigh anything extra if you carried phone anyway.
