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.

nice Doug! Glad I quit working when I did. Found plenty of stuff to do. It's a change though for sure.

Re: Re: Re: Should I or shouldn't I ?
depends on whether my point is to start a real argument, or just make a stupid joke postulating that Jesus was Gay would be another good one?
