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: "Poncho / Bug Bivy"
Is the netting against your face? If so, can bugs bite through it? To me that isn't an issue, because I don't do really buggy places, but in that case, just take a 4 foot diameter cir...

No, the plane took off with Kennedy's body, Johnson (and Jackie) - Johnson wasn't sworn in yet so maybe Kennedy was still officially president so that would have been air force 1. Then Joh...

Maybe air force 1 took off with Kennedy's body, then Johnson was sworn in so that plane was no longer air force 1?

Kennedy's last flight landed, so that's the same number of landings as takeoffs Johnson was sworn in in flight. So when he took off it was air force 2, but when it landed it was air for...
