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: Jerry
When you say "But you'll never believe your boy could be such a criminal." Is that a racist statement? Calling Obama "boy"? Based on what else you've said, I don&...

Nice picture. Fine English. If one of those guys lifts his leg, there will be a gap of several inches below bottom and the socks/boots. Oh! There's Obama. Demonstrating his foreign pol...

Re: insulation question
If the outer garment isn't big enough, it'll compress the inner garment making it less warm. Maybe, if the down is on the inside, it will get compressed more and lose warmth. Synthetic ...
