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 Computers in Class
It seems like this is a more fruitfull line of development than just saying we've doubled spending per pupil in the last 25 years and test scores are down, so we should privatize schools. Or t...

Re: Computers in School
Do teachers still stand in front of a class, go through the same lesson for the entire class? That would be enough for bored students to develop bad attitude. At least it was in 1960s. And can...
