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: Debating
Romney has never run a business. He has been a "vulture capitalist" that takes money out of businesses before bankrupting them. Or made investments in unhealthy businesses, like Staples...

Re: what sort of water containers do you use with a steripen?
Take a 2 liter soda bottle - lighter than Nalgene or gatorade. Or use a 2 liter water bottle which is a little lighter. Cut off top. Make marks at 1/2 and 1 liter mark. It should be cut off...
