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.

I'm not saying I agree with this, just that's the way it is. I'm not saying Obama should bomb Syria, I'm saying congress doesn't want to weigh in - they just want Obama to go...

Re: Carbon fiber replacement pole Shangri la 3 and tyvek ground sheet

One thing interesting is there's no way congress wants to weigh in on this just before the election. Let the president make the decision and execute. If things go well, everyone can (someho...

Re: Frosting lens of LED lantern
It just seems wrong to frost the lens because it's too bright. Why don't LED lights have a low enough setting? Then the battery would last longer It seems like they're more foc...

I don't take everything as truth, but issue by issue, decision by decision, I think Obama has made pretty good decisions. One thing is politics is part of every decision. If you don't g...

As usual, you have excellent points that I tend to agree with over-all. And yeah, I'm an Obama supporter, partially because there is this right wing war against him and people come up with all...

Re: U.S ramping up Major Renewal in Nuclear Arms
As they talked about a little in that article, nuclear weapons decay so become unreliable. So they're making new ones that are more reliable and will retire older ones. In total, nuclear weap...
