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.

If it's half an inch in the last 20 years, and the rate increases as the CO2 levels rise and polar regions warm, in 100 years we could have significant increase plus you have the increase fr...

Re: nalgene
Maybe hypothermia treatment should be practiced ahead of time to make sure it's done correctly

Re: Spooning
If someone is hypothermic but alive, their skin temperature must be above 80 degrees F? Maybe 70 F? If you put them in a sleeping bag, you would want to take all their wet clothes off. If yo...

Re: Spooning is for Co-Ed's
