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.

The other one he got was Kadafi That guy got away with killing Americans for years. Many "tough guy" presidents let him be. Obama got justice.

I don't consider attacking the president during a crisis to take political advantage a joking matter, like Romney did. We should gather round, temporarily (even for just a day or two) and pr...
