FS: New Kelty PK50 Backpack, size S/M, $125 OBO

Brand new. Thought I might want to use it for travel and decided it has too many bells and whistles. This would be a great travel pack. Or maybe a beginner backpack for someone who doesn't mind the weight. It's 50L. As seen here: https://kelty.com/pk-50/ This one is the Grey with Lime Green accents....

FS: Gossamer Gear Kumo Backpack, Size M, $150 Firm

Brand new, never been used. Too big for me (I normally wear a small in GG packs). It's a size Medium. I work in Old Town, can meet most days, or I live in Milwaukie and can meet around there too. Accept Paypal or Venmo. I have photos I can send if needed, but basically it's the same as on the websit...

Re: Heavy gear

Going light is one of the best things I ever did! Next Adventure has presentations on going light sometimes. I've given one for women specifically, but there is usually a general one at least once or twice a year.

Re: Safety Check-in

Here's another way to think about it. Having a Delorme inReach SE is not for me. It's for my family and my friends to know I am okay. Yeah, I like just doing my thing when I am out in the woods and know I am going to make the right choices and not need to hit that SOS button. However, last fall when...

Re: New favorite trail snacks

Betty Lou's are amazing. I took a whole bunch of them with me to Nepal last year and they were a great snack on the trail. They are locally made here in Oregon. You can buy them online: http://www.bettylousinc.com/ or at Amazon: http://amzn.to/1Opu6F8 I discovered them at the Gluten Free Festival la...

Re: Tent or Hammock?

I've been hanging for the past three years and I love it.

I've got my kit down to about the weight of my ground set up, but it does take work and if you want top of the line stuff, your initial investment is going to be quite a bit.

I would check out hammockforums.net for the best info.

Re: Massdrop, Cool Website for Gear

True, but I have gotten some cool stuff so far on this site...of course, it helps that I also love Audio gear, EDC gear, and Writing stuff too!!! :) Also, any site that offers these kinds of discounts is not going to let you look without getting an email...tis the price of being online these days. :)

Re: Is there a trail from Vancouver Wa area to Eastern WA?

Is it still a concept if 5 people have thru-hiked it?

The Chinook Trail is still in development in many ways, but it was first thru-hiked last summer and I think it's going to see a lot more interest in the future, especially if you are looking for less people and a unique thru hike experience.

Bear Springs has group campsites and is not that far from Maupin.
