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: REI web site hides bad products

I'm basing this on theoretical, not actual use, so... If you're above the vaporization temperature of propane, and there's enough propane in the mix, then there will be enough pressu...

I'm sort of agnostic on U.S./U.N./NATO no fly zone in Libya that resulted in Kadafi overthrow. But if we are going to do military actions, this is a better way to do it. If previous preside...
