OREGON! From the coast, through the Willamette Valley, Cascades, and into the High Desert.

Gunnar's Bio

I've had a fascination for the natural world since my blessed childhood in rural N. Idaho. I trounced about on a lot of the mountains up there and over in MT, like the Selkirks, Cabinets, and Rockies. Now I'm in Oregon, going to school at Willamette U. and eating up the wonders of this most beautiful state. The Willamette River watershed is my backyard, but I reach out to the Coast Range quite a bit too. When I'm lucky, I get farther away, like to Steens Mountain!

This is one of the neatest little purchases I've ever made. Compact and powerful, I've used it on hikes, and often break it out when I'm driving in the country. Used it to spot wild horses, big horn sheep, antelope, and coyotes in the Steens High Desert country of E. Oregon. Don't expect to get up to 30X freehand (but who's really gonna bring a tripod for this little thing?), but its great to about 20, which is all I need. Bottom line: great fun for the price.

Great introductory backpacking tent.

Great 1st backpacking tent, so far. I've had this about two months and used it nearly 14 nights already. It has stood up well to the perpetually damp ground of Western Oregon, and kept me dry in a few serious downpours. Ventilation could be a smidge better when the rainfly is entirely zipped and strapped down - gets slightly damp from exhalation vapors. Overall I'm very happy. The entirely mesh canopy provides great star viewing at night. Like everybody says, its tight with two, but thats what I wanted.
