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: Fishing in Three Sisters?
I've done the cut-through route between Middle and South Sisters. I like that scenery better than the rest of the loop. A bit tricky finding route which makes it more interesting to me. Do...

Wow! That is an impressive setup. Much more difficult to model a human erect torso with arms than just a flat plate like I did (and Roger's but I should let him speak for himself). Your ex...
