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: Unsafe
Did ABC news do a story that showed this, or did they just echo the Israeli line? I have seen some stories, like on PBS.

Re: North Lake - South Lake
I have reservations for August 27, although I have just $11 invested into this so could easily change plans. That's just what I was thinking - park at South, hike or hitch over to North - go...

The other thing is, occasionally someone is convicted and on death row, and then they get DNA evidence or whatever that proves they're innocent. According to innocence project, "We will...

Re: me too

Re: To read.
It seems hopeless but the haaretz.com article had a solution. Isn't that an Israeli group? Liberal/moderate Israelis have the best ideas how to solve this mess. I think you and I actually ...

I don't know about Romney, but I'm very critical of Bush. He made little effort to make peace and he sided with Israel. Worse than that, he squandered a huge opportunity - after 9/11 ...
