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: wtb: liquid fuel stove for winter
Jetboil will work down to 25 F or even 20 F. If you put it in a pan of water, you can go much colder. Occasionally throw in a little of your heated water. The heat of combustion is like 100X t...

Re: re: pit zips
I've tried pit zips but they never seemed very effective. There wasn't a lot of ventilation happening. But some people like them which is okay with me : )

Re: What is our moral responsibility to bacteria?
Is it possible that the genetic information in small pox could be useful? Maybe we could use them to defeat the attack of the extra-earth aliens? Maybe there's some useful property?
