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: What ever happened to outdoor specialty stores?
I have three REIs within 10 miles, and a fourth about 15 miles away I have visited all of them, but they just don't carry much that I need.

Re: Folgers singles
I would just bury wet tea bag in cathole with my human waste. It decomposes in a short time.
