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: Re: Single AA battery headlamps
so, from Eric's data, the 14500 rechargeable Lithium ion batteries weigh 50% to 75% as much as NiMh for the same capacity. A flashlight might weigh 1 ounce less. If you had several devices ...

Re: Single AA battery headlamps
How much does a 14500 weigh? I saw some that were 1200 mAh. 3.6 V. = 4320 milli Volt Amp hours AA NiMh is 1.06 oz, 2400 mAh, 1.2 V that would be 2717 milli Volt Amp hours / ounce

Re: Sawyer Squeeze 0.1 mini and regular flow rates
it seems like the flow rate of Sawyer filters is wildly variable like Bob Gross reported that when he changed the length of output hose a little it made a big difference I only use Squeeze mo...

Re: Re: Sawyer mini storage Q's
Sawyer mentions Calcium as what clogs filters, so that makes since to use distilled water for backflushing before storing if your water is heavily mineralized. Do you then add a little bleach?

The hollow tubes (connected to output of filter) don't dry. Maybe if you run aquarium pump through them it will, but there's no reason to. The space outside of the hollow tubes (connect...
