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: Aug 3rd post by Rog
Don't you have anything better to do, Dan, than read Rog's website? : ) Is copying his own "position statement" as though it was "at the moment" worse than splicing i...

Re: agreed
I don't think you have to bring the syringe unless you're going many nights, or even weeks Just use it at home between each trip

Re: spliced up co2 data
We can have dueling scientific data : ) The further back you go, the less accurate the atmospheric data is. How long have they been sampling Mauna Kea for example? And 1800 is 21 decades. O...

Re: spliced up co2 data

Re: Re: padded cell
It seems like the CO2 data from ice cores is pretty unambiguous: The amount of CO2 increase approximately corresponds to the amount and time of fossil fuel burning I'll agree with Rog...

Evernew Ti 900 - the classic 0.6 oz saves 0.7 oz compared to 1.3 oz combine that with a bunch of other 0.7 ounce savings and it will be noticeable

Re: Let's talk about cook pot lids
My Ti Evernew lid weighs 1.3 ounces. It would be possible to save maybe 1 ounce if I had a lighter one. I'm too lazy to do anything about it. One thing I don't like is that if stuff fa...

Re: Should I bring anything extra for possible rainy backpacking trip
If you're talking "forecast" then you must be talking about the next 7 (or 10) days There is very little rain during that period at least anywhere I am looking at If there's...
