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.

"Maybe it's time to quit blaming ourselves." Forget blaming If you, for example, gave people free education, and they got a job rather than became a criminal, and thus avoided b...

Re: Re: Layering System for Those Who Sweat a Lot????
I wear thin nylon (Supplex) shirt and pants. They're usually damp when I'm done hiking, but they dry off within an hour or so. While they're drying off, I still have some body heat fr...

Yeah, Vanguard Total Market Fund is better, although there is little difference in performance between SP500 and total market. Tom has me beat by one year - pisses me off : )

Re: Re: Terror in Copenhagen today
