My Locale Western Washington
About Me I started backpacking again in 2008, after a long hiatus---I haven't been since I was a kid. Loving learning about a different way to hike---backpacking was no fun when I was a teen-ager, stuff was too heavy! Completed my dream of hiking the Wonderland Trail in 2010, now onto more hikes in the Cascades and Olympics.

drinking matcha tea on the trail
For those of you who drink matcha, how are you preparing it? I understand it needs whisking, or do you just drink it grainy? When I e-mailed Rishi Tea, she suggested their On-the-go Matcha stic...

Re: re: starbucks
Yep, cats in the pants. Not at all comfortable, needs to be treated. My quirky sense of humor-that's humour to the UK folks.

Bellingham too far
I love Bellingham, too, spent 4 years at undergrad up there, but it is at least an hour away from the most northern town on that map, Marysville. Double check your mileage requirements for that on...

Signage is small
The sign for the group site is very small. You will see the sign for Skokomish Park very well, then a small sign for the group site on the left, then the North site is another big sign. Easy peas...

Montbell Outpace Parka
The Outpace Parka is a decent jacket, but it has some design details that could be better. It sheds rain really well. It is pretty light and packable. Its breathability seems to be fairly good, alth...
