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: Winter backpacking and 2WD cars with chains?
Bring extra food and water in case you get stuck. Leave intenerary with someone so SAR could bail you out. A couple years ago I drove FWD until I got stuck - snow was a little deeper than I tho...

Re: Re: Re: Re blockages
You should probably know how to clean it out anyway, so if it gets clogged in the field you can fix it.
