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: Why do male adventurers not take their female partners along?
I don't like to backpack with men or women. Nice to be away for a few days and just have simple life - get up, eat, pack up, walk, unpack, eat, sleep,... My wife likes to go in RV. She'...

Re: soshr.
I like the cross country from Bishop Pass to JMT. You could do a smaller loop. I was eyeing South Lake/North Lake loop but that requires a 10 mile road walk or hitch hike.

Good idea Michael Although if there was going to be a super big earthquake in 1000 years, vs a big earthquake now with lubrication, would you have liability for all the people that suffered dama...

Re: How many ponchos to make a quilt top?
That seems weird to buy several Driducks to get the required amount of that fabric. Too bad you can't just buy the fabric. I have same problem - like to cowboy camp but sometimes dew is a p...
