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.

The other economic problem is trade imbalance, but for some reason, no one talks much about solving this. An exception is Bernanke's blog

I think we can replace the phrase "get some balls" with "get some ovaries" : )

Re: Re: Re: Re: First ever project. Puffy pants!
You don't need to put in zipper. Just make it big enough at waist to get on and off, and then have elastic and/or a nylon drawstring.
