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.

I'm not saying someone should not have nose ring, but it does make my stomach turn just a bit. Call it prejudice. After I've seen more of them I am accepting them a little more.

Re: How's that bet with Dean going?
I forget, did Dean accept your bet? That reminds me of the debate where Romney offered to bet $1000 (?) on something. $1000 to him is like a $1 bet to you or me
