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.

1 - I don't know that the civil war was worth it. Still a lot of ill will. I wonder if Lincoln wasn't killed, he would not have had the same attitude about punishing the confederate state...

Re: Re: Who pitches during the day?
hide in the shade during the day when it's hot? Under an aluminized tarp if there's no tree or rock? Walk in the morning and evening?

Re: "Club membership"
We have PBS, MSNBC, the Onion, fact check, Air America (or what's left of it), Rand Paul, the Democratic Party,... none of which would be tolerated in Russia

Re: Oregon Coastal Trail

People in Russia don't have as many sources for reading and thinking. Media is more controlled.
