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: haha
If it's a ground fault, then current is going back from the hot wire, onto the ground rather than the neutral wire. http://www.familyhandyman.com/electrical/breaker-box/fix-a-sensitive-arc-f...

Re: Re: Re: Re: haha
does it trip because of a ground fault or because current is exceeded?

Re: Electrifying your trail guide
yeah, good idea, sometimes I'll take picture of a map rather than carry paper

AFCI can be tricky : ) You replaced the circuit breaker that trips? It trips when nothing is turned on?
