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 White rice is killing you
The reason they remove the germ from rice is so it has longer shelf life. When I make rice, I always use brown rice - store it in freezer. White rice, white flour, sugar in all it's forms...

Re: Cairns

Re: profanity
"I didn't know there even was a filter. Go figure." You obviously don't use profanity or the word Arsenic spelled in lower caps

Re: Cordura
That makes sense, Roger Then there's really no reason for Cordura in lightweight gear Unless you want to slide it around on rock or maybe bushwacking in thorns
