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.

Bernie and Hillary say that we should have fair trade with China, but they don't seem as villifying as Trump. Maybe just my hearing : )

Re: "Can the GOP Sink Any Lower? Yes It Can!!"
Don't forget about Trump vilifying Chinese too - they are responsible for our bad economy (ignoring the fact the economy is actually pretty good)

Re: low fat vs low carb
the other part of the equation is how many calories pass through you and can your diet or exercise or temperature increase your metabolic rate so you burn more just sitting there

Re: Yes to both!
uh oh, your link is broke. It said "my compass is broken". Very clever. and your technique for cold weather is good. I've tried it before and will refine it a bit this winter.
