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: "Generally not invading our neighbours"
I heard that. Obama said Russia "is a regional power". Not catering to Putin's ego. That had to be a well thought out strategic move, not just an off-hand remark. I wonder wha...

If you're a member you can just go there and tell them you want to use your 20% off coupon, you don't need to bring any paper coupon or anything. They keep track in their computer.

Still a lot of snow at elevation, like on Mt Hood. Hard to find where trail is. Microspikes and/or snowshoes might be in order. Columbia Gorge would be wide open. Still some snow at highest p...
