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.

A floorless pyramid tarp/tent is the confusing one, if you want to become consumed in classifying things : ) It has no floor, so Bob and I would call it a tarp. Maybe the definition of tarp s...

Re: Re: rocks
Burned wood is fertilizer. Just let it be and it will get spread around and used by plants. It's better to just let the wood decompose naturally and slowly, but not that bad to burn it. Th...

Re: A new male in the daytime
I wonder if there are mountain lions wandering around at night when I'm camping? Maybe I should set up a camera? Or maybe I don't want to know : )
