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.

They posted warning signs at the trailhead and just before where it collapsed I wonder what the warning sign said vs completely closing the trail? Here on Mt Hood, they left the gate across t...

In the U.S. there has been horrible treatment of aetheists. Sort of like Gay people or non-white people. (Got to capitalize the first letter of Gay to get by profanity filter, how funny...)

Re: Re: Re: Re: Long-term water usage in California
Interesting - conservation is way cheaper Don't you also put water back into aquifier rather than build a reservoir?
