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: Svea 123 vs. Canister Stoves
The Svea 123 jet gets clogged with soot, although the included cleaning tool should fix that if you haven't lost it. I remember camping in the snow on Mt Rainier and I couldn't get the s...

Re: Re: Fleece and windshirt
I wear fleece a lot but not when I'm backpacking. The warmth for the weight isn't good. For the same weight, I can get a much warmer synthetic or down. But, that assumes that while hik...
