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.

In the U.S. there has been horrible treatment of aetheists. Sort of like Gay people or non-white people. (Got to capitalize the first letter of Gay to get by profanity filter, how funny...)

Interesting - conservation is way cheaper Don't you also put water back into aquifier rather than build a reservoir?

Re: Batteries

Re: Fundamental Oneness
I respect people with religious feelings other than mine I don't have the wisdom to think they'd be better if they believed differently I hate evangelicals, especially aetheists

Re: Lithium Vs. Ni-MH Batteries (AA)
Lithium weigh a little less and have almost twice the capacity, but you can't recharge them
