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.

Re: Re: Workers comp
"It's an awful set up and it so needs to change." But we have "the best government money can buy" so that will be difficult. Down with Citizen's United!!!

Re: Who makes minimum wage??
In Micheal's article it said there were studies that said for teenagers, raising the minimum wage would raise unemployment a little. For young adults (under 30?) it may raise unemployment but ...

Re: Re: Lacing suggestions
Maybe shoes aren't wide enough? If the gap wasn't so wide, the tongue would completely span the gap. I have that problem with some shoes. More aesthetic than anything.
