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.

Good idea Brad - let Bush tax cuts expire. If you just eliminate tax cuts on rich people, it doesn't add up to enough to solve the problem, but it is a fairness thing, some people should not...

What does the little "F" mean next to people's names?

Re: Board Oscillation -- Anyone else seen this?
If it pulls as hard as it can, will it pull less hard if the voltage goes too low? Then you could use chargers with different capacities. Another thing is, you could just connect a solar pane...

Re: Polycore Thread
You can find cotton covered polyester thread at the fabric store, but it's fairly light weight, probably not what you're looking for.
