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: 8 year old Marmot Whisperer
You shouldn't train wild animals to be friendly with humans. This can only end badly for them. Better to yell at them and scare them away. bah humbug!

Is terrorism alert just to distract us from illegal wiretapping?
This alarm bell is going off in my head. They say it's non-specific. Increased "buzz". "Just like what happened on 9/11". I'm skeptical

Then the reason people are so much against him is he didn't get in? Other politicians that did get in are okay?
