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: Creating Enemies
Allegiences between Western Europe, U.S., Canada, Japan, Australia,... are pretty good. Not always perfect, but no wars between us. How can Russia and China be included in this club?

if the weather's good I like view if the weather's bad, then "hike high, camp low" Still waiting for Doug's nudists. Not where I've ever been.

Why don't the Marmots just chew through the blue tarp?
