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: 3 ounce per garment
I use maybe 3 ounces total for boots and gaiters, once a year, so that's 8 years. If I also did pants, it would be only 4 years. But, not that many ticks here.

Re: Re: Permethrin tick repellent for clothing
I got a bottle of Sawyer. Maybe spray my gaiters and boots once a year. Maybe my pants. After a few years most of the bottle is left. I should probably get rid of it because it becomes ineffect...

Re: Re: CEPR
Okay, a couple CEPR articles that say minimum wage doesn't have a negative effect on the economy: http://www.cepr.net/index.php/blogs/cepr-blog/the-minimum-wage-and-economic-growth Minim...

Re: CEPR
ahhh... it's a progressive think tank... I thought so : ) it does seem to ojectively look at data rather than just have some opinion and find studies to support it
