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: To read.
It seems hopeless but the haaretz.com article had a solution. Isn't that an Israeli group? Liberal/moderate Israelis have the best ideas how to solve this mess. I think you and I actually ...

I don't know about Romney, but I'm very critical of Bush. He made little effort to make peace and he sided with Israel. Worse than that, he squandered a huge opportunity - after 9/11 ...
