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: Re: Re: Re: Roger D. is interesting too !
That's what I did Ian - save 20% mostly in 401K, retire at 51 But I don't see how you can plan it precisely. It depends how your investments do. I worked fairly hard, some 50 hour we...

Re: Re: Spontaneous Trans Fat Prose
I agree, almost every problem comes down to the fact we have "the best government money can buy" The FDA has delayed doing anything about trans fat because it's been bought, but th...

My wife got an REI fleece vest that I'm wearing this moment. She bought some shirts for me. I can't stand going through thrift stores. It takes so much time to find one thing that'...
