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: Awnings Tarps and Wind.......
That makes sense I've always thought pyramid tents were stronger because the pole isn't pre-bent. Like the "McKinley Tent" from the 1970s. I wonder if they still make the...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Heat Exchanger pot weights and other thoughts.
But if you calculated the average percentage of days the average bpl person has to melt snow, it's probably 5% or less I've done it a couple times, but it was just for the sake of doing ...

"They are intended for non inclement weather." The mountainous background seems inconsistent with non inclement Although occasionally it's non inclement there I'm sure

LNT is just hiker aesthetics. People don't want to go hiking and see trash all over. I'm into it. I always collect trash and carry it out. Rarely, a piece of trash will get away from ...
