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: Emissivity of alumized Cuben, Silnylon
That makes sense, thanks Someone said aluminum was on one side. Next time there's a clear night I'll measure the other side.

Re: Re: Argon silnylon
"It is really thin stuff." As would be expected for the weight : ) If you made a tent, would it survive or get ripped to shreds? Can you sew it without destroying it? With other...

Re: Geigerrig water from air
Maybe you can use the water to produce electricity using cold fusion - solution to world energy problem/global warming - we can finally shut down the global warming thread in chaff
