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: non-stick pans and wood fires?
If you over heat Teflon, it loses it's non-stick property so food starts sticking. You're probably right, okay to eat Teflon flakes, but doesn't sound appetizing. I wonder if over...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Ukraine's poison pill for peace talks

uh-oh, sounds like Rog is part of the Tom/Kat camp : ) I don't really disagree with most of what you say. Of course we should not give military aid to Ukraine. But, Putin is a psychopath...
