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.

ISIS was created by the Iraq war. We imprisoned the future ISIS leaders which allowed them to form relationships that turned into ISIS. If we had never attacked Iraq, there'd be no ISIS. ...

Re: Cat curve along the base
Yeah, I wonder if a cat curve on the edge does anything good? That is, will the tent be usable in conditions with higher wind speed.
