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: Re: Firing Sawyer
My 45 seconds for one pint was just at a normal rate. I didn't try to rush it. 9 seconds for one pint is really good. I think that if you filter just one pint, either 9 seconds or 45 wou...

Yeah, when I go to Trinity Alps I stop at Coffee Creek Ranger Station and fill out form. No one has ever asked to see it, or the wilderness permit, but I go in May/October when there aren't ...

Re: A historical question on social psychopathy
The solution to our problems is for all the high functioning rich people to "go on strike" and move to an island. The rest of us, left to ourselves, will degenerate into chaos.

Re: Re: Firing Sawyer
I take 45 seconds to filter 1 pint 9 seconds? that seems too quick. Maybe your filter is broken? Did it ever freeze? If you try to blow through it can you detect any flow? If so, it's p...
