My Locale Western Washington
About Me I started backpacking again in 2008, after a long hiatus---I haven't been since I was a kid. Loving learning about a different way to hike---backpacking was no fun when I was a teen-ager, stuff was too heavy! Completed my dream of hiking the Wonderland Trail in 2010, now onto more hikes in the Cascades and Olympics.

Nope, don't know what that is. So are you saying that you can just use regular cake mix and add water, no milk or egg powder addition necessary?

lined muffin pan
I would use Reynolds aluminum foil muffin liners, in the heaviest muffin pan you can find. I used to bake a traditional Easter Russian bread called Kulick in a coffee can, as that was the closest ...

wind pants in PNW
I do pack mine, and where I have used them most is in the shoulder seasons, or muddy conditions. For example, hiking in to Enchanted Valley last summer--misty rain, some outright showers, muddy tr...

dehydrating hamburger
Dehydrating hamburger is easy, although it definitely does rehydrate better with 1/2 cup of bread crumbs/pound of hamburger--not Paleo. I've done it without the bread crumbs, and it was more l...

volume of Inov-8 shoes
The thing that drew me to the Inov-8 line is the fact that there are interchangeable insoles that can be used to "customize" the fit of the shoe. My right foot is larger volume than my l...

I didn't say it made sense, Bob, just that that is what he said yesterday. He should be careful what he says. Now he's getting a titanium poo-trowel for his birthday! Maybe it's ...

Montbell Outpace Parka
The Outpace Parka is a decent jacket, but it has some design details that could be better. It sheds rain really well. It is pretty light and packable. Its breathability seems to be fairly good, alth...
