An Aberdeen man was sentenced after victimizing more than 40 hikers and campers in National Parks across western Washington.

In a release from The United States Department of Justice, 41-year-old Michael Wayne Pickering was sentenced in U.S. District Court in Tacoma to two years in federal prison to follow a 25 month state prison term.

US Attorney Brian Moran says that the local man prowled at least four dozen cars at more than seven different trailheads and parking lots stretching from Mount Rainier National Park to Third Beach on the Pacific coast, to trailheads in the interior of the Olympic Peninsula’s national park and forest.

Well it looks like the idiot Picklewing got his just reward. let the a*& rot.

This thread makes me think of they sold meth on Amazon and delivered it in 2 days with a Prime, we'd have fewer TH break ins.  No street dealer is going to compete with Bezos on price.

I removed my post because I considered it too sarcastic.  But seriously, carrying your wallet means you won't be able to carry other gear?  Here's the wallet I use for backpacking: https://www.wheredoyouroam.com/shop

I use a ziploc baggie. Practically free. Even cheaper if I get a box of off-brand at RiteAid's dollar aisle.

It all fits into a tiny zippered case

You mean a wallet. smile.gif

I have a hiking wallet, and an everyday wallet. Until recently, my hiking wallet was one made by Simblissity. More or less this. I really liked it because it could function just fine as a "real wallet". It has a spot for cards, which I filled with my drivers license, credit and ATM card. You can put cash in there and easily sort through it (like a real wallet) which is practically impossible with a money clip or plastic bag. It also had a lanyard ring, which means I just hooked it to the keys while driving, and then hooked the whole mess to the inside of my pack while hiking. It wore about half an ounce, and if I was lazy in moving my stuff back to my regular wallet, it didn't matter. I could pull out cash just fine, making my regular wallet essentially just the holder of additional cards (ORCA, etc.) and change. Oh, it had a change pocket, I just rarely used it.

Unfortunately, those days are gone. They don't make those wallets anymore. After some time, I settled on something similar, made by MLD. It is a fine wallet, it just lacks a lanyard, as well as a closure system. I sewed a couple loops on it, and it works great for the mountains, but it is still a bit clunky for everyday use.

The wallets graywolf mentioned look gorgeous. I just wonder if it is essentially a small bag, or if you can pull money out and sort through the way you can with a "real wallet". In other words, do you fold the money up, and put it in there (like a money clip) or is there a wrap around compartment that holds the paper bills? (I can't tell from the website).
