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: Glacier Peak Wilderness
What happened to Kennedy Hotsprings? I went there maybe 20 years ago. The hot springs weren't much as I remember - a muddy pool not that hot. But everything else about that area is great.

Re: The Evolution of a Winter Stove - Part 5: Infra-Red testing
Good article Roger That makes me question how useful those IR sensor thermometers are. Must have the same problem of the effect of emissivity?
