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: Re: What do you use to carry food?
I take Triscuit crackers and put them in rows in a zip top bag to take less space and be more resistant to breaking. On a trip, there's usually just a few that break. Also, I can count them...

Re: Solar variation and temperature trends
CO2 absorbs some of the IR being emitted from the air and the oceans. So that CO2 gets a little warmer. Otherwise the IR would have been emmitted to outer space. That warmth is conducted to the ...

I don't see how you reconcile Willie Soon saying he's a Smithsonian Astrophysicist, but the Smithsonian says he's a part time researcher and they're questioning his ethics
