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: See SPOT Run
SPOT doesn't need to work all the time. If there's sometimes a several hour delay getting an emergency message out that would still be very useful. If there's a several day delay un...

Re: Re: Re: The real reasons why Israel is bombing Palestine
At the end of the video, they interviewed one Isreali who was supportive of the Gaza attacks. Actually, Isrealis are a lot more critical of anti Palistinian policies than U.S. people are. If that...
