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 agree with you drones killing people is a bad idea It's immoral to kill people It's ineffective - just riles people up. A new #2 guy will replace the one we killed. (Why is it the...

Re: "Can the GOP Sink Any Lower? Yes It Can!!"

Re: Trump Is NOT a Progressive Republican.
Trump did not go bankrupt, but a business he controlled did. If Trump was president, maybe he could bankrupt away the national debt. Maybe bankrupt away just the debt owned to the Chinese, his ne...

Re: Bivy/tarp user
Same here, I cowboy camp when possible, about 50% of the time. Bivy good for that. Occasionally I have to quickly get up at night and put my tarp up.
