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.

> 4 hours contact time just to drink the water is ridiculous, That's why many of us have switched to Sawyer Squeeze - doesn't rely on complicated electronic device with batteries : )

Re: Jerry Adams - Strawberry Mountains
that would be me : ) I had a bit of a negative review of that area. That didn't turn you off? It would be quite hot there now. Better start hiking at 5 AM to avoid the heat. Actually...

Re: Backpacking Oregon
To be honest, I haven't done much in "Mosquito Heaven" but it's not real alpine. Too many tress. Not enough views. Relative to some of those other places at least. (Actually, ...
