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 think Shoe Goo is a slightly thicker version of urethane sealant, compared to McNett Seam Grip (Or, maybe the Shoe Goo I've seen was old)

Re: Hapi
is #3 main zip too small? I had #3 on similar tent and after a while it broke, so replaced it with #5. I'm thinking that's probably better, but the #3 lasted a long time.

Re: @ Jerry
If they made an exception once per year, or once every few years after a winter with lots of tree fall, I would be okay with it. Probably be better to hire enough people to use non mechanized to...
