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: Snaps.
With long pants, when you raise your knee up to take a step, the bottom of the pants go up too. With gaiters hanging from your calf or just sitting there on top of your shoes, they will stay ove...

Re: Snaps.
I just let my gaiters hang loose. Doesn't work as good for lower shoes. Or if I'm sinking into show.

Policemen are trained to control the suspect without having to shoot him. Was Trevon a trained MMA person?

"kitchen/bath/plumbing" has mildewcide? I would rather not have that. Might be toxic or affect performance? "3 hour shower ready" - I wonder what they do to it to make it c...
