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: Re: 2 liter Platy
1 "drop" is maybe 1/20th of a mL so there are 20,000 drops per liter if you had 1 drop of untreated water in 1 liter, then 99.998% of the water would be treated. Steripen adverti...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Antidote to Manipulation? Knowledge.
I raise your "patriot act" with "the department of homeland security" Wasn't that a Nazi term? It should be abolished and broken back up into the agencies that were before.
