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: USA vs Australia/ Rugby
Isn't Rugby where the quarterback doesn't pay off the ball handlers so they over inflate the football and it becomes a rugby ball?

Re: Thermal conductivity of water
The molecules vibrate around. The faster they move, the warmer they are. Adjacent molecules are struck which slows down the warmers and speeds up the warmees. That's the heat or energy trans...

Re: Thermal conductivity of water
The water is directly against metal. And convects - as it gets hot it rises and other water takes it's place.
