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: Re: Never buying from REI again
From description, it sounds like the seams were defective - bad thread or tension or whatever. Legitimate gripe. Just because there was also a hole from poking it doesn't change things. Bu...

Re: Gentrified?
I think if someone has lived in a primitive situation too close to camping, then they have no desire to do it recreationally If you've always lived in a house sleeping on a bed, then camping...

Re: Re: Re: See what happens
one thing I hate is when someone posts something, then deletes it and replaces it with "nm" I wonder what it was he said that he re-considered???
