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: Re: Re: Re: what's the deal with upf shirts?
Isn't the UPF rating for the fabric? Doesn't account for how well the shirt covers your neck or arms or anything? I don't think anyone will wear their shirt enough hours for it to b...

Interesting Eric. I'm just curious about down getting wet incidents. That makes sense that a jacket would get wet from sweat. Maybe that's an application for fleece, if it provides e...

Re: LL Bean
is there a case where your untreated down bag got wet and lost loft that wouldn't have happened if it had been treated down?

Re: Re: "Valley Uprising"
Three people hiking up fairly steep glacier with crampons? Roped together but no belay or anything? That is a common practice on Cascade volcanoes. But maybe doesn't make that much sense? ...

I have an extra cherry tomato plant. I put it out. They usually just sit there for a couple weeks and the weather gets to them. Better to wait. Weather seems unusually nice this year...
