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: carry both
I'm not that much into snowshoes. I avoid deep snow, unless it's well consolidated spring snow you can walk over the top of. I have Yaktrax. They have this rubber band on the bottom. ...

Re: Why Elizabeth Warren and Rand Paul offer glimmers of hope — but not for 2016
that's pretty depressing Doug. Even an Elizabeth Warren or Rand Paul would become assimilated if they actually were nominated. How do we get out of this mess I wonder???
