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: If something happened to you, would anybody know how much your gear is worth?"
What would be a shame is if my wife threw all my stuff in the landfill rather than giving it to someone who would appreciate it

Re: The Multiplier, CLF, and the lost of Freedom
The employees, especially executives, and the board of directors own stock in most companies, and they are very aware of the stock price with a short term focus. The board of directors rewards t...
