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.

"How about the Iraq war with misinformation about WMD." The right wingers knew there were no WMD. That was just a propoganda argument to get people to go along. They wanted a war f...

Re: State of Texas water plan acknowledges climate change
So why is it that consumption has dropped, and you didn't mention it but supply has increased, yet the cost has increased? If it was just supply and demand, prices should have dropped.

Re: State of Texas water plan acknowledges climate change
"How do you know they will make less money?" Supply and demand. Economics 101. If the demand for gas is less, then the price will go down and the amount of gas sold will go down so t...
