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.

Coast of Olympic Peninsula? It's about 35 miles from Shi Shi to Rialto Beach which is all wilderness but maybe not long enough for you. Or Lost Coast in Northern California - same problem, ...

Re: Speaking a different language
There's plenty of capital. And what else can you do, buy a CD or Treasury bond? They get zero interest. There's a shortage of people buying things, that's the problem.
