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.

Why almond?
So far, I've been unable to find a powdered coconut that is free of casein, which I'm allergic to. I've heard of "vegan" powdered coconut, but so far every one I've seen ...

cat-holing therapy
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 ...

What does that make vegans who eat vegemite? :( Wouldn't that make them cannibals?

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...
