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: Never buying from REI again
Last year there just wasn't anything at REI I wanted to buy. I used to buy butane canisters, but the ones at Freddies are cheaper, even with the REI 20% off coupon. I'm member 257xxx

Re: Re: Re: you'll NEVER believe the INCREDIBLE THINGS in this POST!
Yeah, combining synthetic and down is a problem, because synthetic wears out after a few years (or whatever) but down should last more or less forever. So, if you have a garment with down and sy...

Re: re
Funny thing, when I was there August 2007 it was frozen too: View from farther back: Pretty scenic. Yet, it's pretty nice from the PCT also and I don't necesarily disagree.. T...

Re: re
Yeah, PCT is probably the best of the Goat Rocks. You could do a side trip to Goat Lake. Mt Adams is a little more difficult than just a walk up. Maybe you need ice axe and crampons, maybe you...

650 feet vertical is a lot try diving that deep very little sunlight goes that far down if sea creatures have to go down below the sunlight layer, that would effect them
