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: Holey foam
If you squish the foam flat it's easier to poke a hole through it Like you could have a plywood board with a hole. Squish foam. Poke through the hole to make hole in foam.

educate and empower women - that will result in stable population Like as happened in the west If women are subservient and just do what husband says, then population will continue to grow

Re: MYOG First 3x3 Tarp
Nice tarp. Nice video. I like that fabric. How much does it weigh? It's probably over-engineered, but that's okay. Zigzag stitch only needed for seams going into corners, because t...

Re: Re: Re: Since we're transitioning from silly to serious
The point of that PNAS study, was that population control is not a quick fix. We still need to transition to alternate energy sources, use resources more efficiently,... If you look at wikipedi...
