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: Proud of my fellow BPLrs.
That's what I hate about BPLers, deleting their posts : ) (actually I agree with Ken, I don't know what's wrong with me, too much powdered alcohol maybe?)

Re: zipper
If you have no pockets, you don't need either zipper or elastic. For water bottle, in main compartment it stays cooler. Or keeps from freezing. Pockets add weight, weak points, and water...

Re: Making a Floor for Oware Pyramid Tent
Why sew floor? Just lay on ground. Netting can just lay against it and prevent bugs. Just make sure the floor is at least 6 inches or 1 foot from edge, so water doesn't flow off tent wall,...
