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: daypack/stff sack
Nice! I made something similar. I don't like regular daypack for backpacking because they're so heavy. A lightweight one like yours is good for a hike from basecamp - jacket, water, ...

Re: Silnet on silnylon floor
I applied diluted silicone to both sides of bivy bottom - for water-proofness Bottom started peeling after a while where it abrades against the ground I probably didn't dilute it as much ...

When you say "But you'll never believe your boy could be such a criminal." Is that a racist statement? Calling Obama "boy"? Based on what else you've said, I don&...

What I understand is that a local militia got arms that use to be Kadafi's. They were p...ed off about the video. They did an orchestrated and sophisticated terrorist attack. So, you are j...
