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.

Better to stabilize with a row of stitches all the way around maybe 1/2" or 1" from the edge. If you do 3" or 4" you will have a spot at the edge where there's no insulat...

Re: CA People -- in the hole for $500 per person?
Why is California (and other localities) so far in the hole? Is it wasteful, expensive, liberal programs that have been implemented in recent years? Taxes have been cut for some people, for e...
