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: New ultralightweight sleeping bag from PHD
"Wouldn't the down probably get crushed crammed inside a normal bag?" If the outer bag is big enough then it won't reduce loft of inner bag too much. If you have two bags, t...

Re: Accuracy or otherwise of GPS
Just fooling around on patio, looking at "the bars" The bars were bigger when I held GPS a foot away from my body. Didn't make any difference whether it was pointing up or sideway...

Re: "Accuracy or otherwise of GPS"
I used the clip some, then a couple times it came unclipped, so I just started putting it in my pocket. Yeah, reception much better.

Re: Has anyone created their own insulated "cooler" stuff sack or dry bag?
If you have a sleeping bag or whatever, put cool stuff inside it, it will have a lot more insulation

Re: MYOG Quilt Baffle Sewing ?
I folded when I made jacket. Less likely to unravel and pull out. I don't see how it's really any more difficult.

Re: Accuracy or otherwise of GPS

Re: Re: Re: Re: Accuracy or otherwise of GPS
I've seen similar error with Garmin 60CSx. The path on the GPS parallels the true path, offset by maybe a fraction of a mile, then it snaps back to the true path. It doesn't happen that...
