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: Rich
Fred, what's fair is for everyone to pay the same percentage of their income in taxes, and maybe give lower income people a break and pay less - a lot of the reason they get paid less has to do...

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.
