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.

yeah, I'd call it a draw. Trump is pretty "entertaining" but it'll probably get old after a while. People will figure out how to deal with him. People will remember him calli...

I use 900 ml Ti pot Boil water, turn to simmer, throw in food, stir, put on lid, let simmer for 15 seconds, let sit for 5 minutes. Or 10 minutes I just don't like the idea of putting bo...

How about Bernie vs Trump in the general election? That would be interesting.

Re: Freezing McNett Seam Grip
I just noticed where a rodent(?) chewed on my down sleeping bag. A bit of down leaked out. Got my McNett out of freezer and let it warm up for 30 minutes. Put a couple dabs on the small holes.
