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: should I?

Re: Liquid Fuel Consumption vs. Canister Fuel Consumption.
8 oz of white gas should do about the same as 8 oz of canister fuel. Check it out first though. Read the instructions : ) Pump fuel bottle to pressurize. Open valve to let a little fuel int...

Re: Re: Fin Design
If you take the cone, and bend it to make fins, keeping the same cross sectional area for the exhaust gases to flow through. Then it won't obstruct the flow. The cone will get hot, so if it...

Re: Dehydrating vegetables

Re: Regulations
Kat, I think any ill feelings from Jennifer and I are just mis-communication. We don't have to agree 100%. There's no point identifying agreements, just the differences. (I shouldn...
