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: Getting ticketed for stealth camping
I think stealth camping sometimes means camping at a spot not used by others and leaving it like no one ever camped there. I sometimes camp at a spot you're not really supposed to camp at bu...

Re: Re: Mobil 1
I'm lucky if I put 3K miles per year. I just change oil once a year. My repair person said regular oil starts breaking down after 6 months so I should use synthetic, but I'm not sure ...
