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're going to have a season two Maybe the last episode will be a cliff hanger to entice people to listen to season two?

Re: Layering Advice
I don't think Houdini will keep out rain. Okay if any rain is minimal. I would say too many layers. All you need is base layer, insulated layer, WPB rain jacket. Only wear insulated layer...
