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: Analog tuners
I used to think only AM was good in the back country, but as you pointed out a long time ago, FM works good too. Maybe even better. AM better at night though. You've said analog tuner is g...

Re: Trump coming to Phoenix
I don't think Trump "says what he thinks", I think he says what will promote the Trump name. He knows it has to appear to be "saying what he thinks" because that's what...
