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: Metric System
metric system is scientist and engineer baloney maybe... the "English" system is English. I thought we got rid of them a couple hundred years ago.

Re: DWR Down
For a lightweight bag, like 2.5 ounce/yd2 synthetic, down has little advantage over synthetic. Synthetic bag compresses to small size in pack. Down bag has extra baffles which weighs more and can...

Re: Re: split pea soup
So if you add boiling water to Bob's Red Mill Pea flour, and let it sit a couple minutes, will it be ready to eat? Dehydrated beans or other legumes from packitgourmet is sort of expensive...

If it's a ground fault, then current is going back from the hot wire, onto the ground rather than the neutral wire. http://www.familyhandyman.com/electrical/breaker-box/fix-a-sensitive-arc-f...
