    Sounds like a good option to me. I use a pad (T-rest Prolite) instead of an UQ so I always have a good ground option.

    I carry half a z-rest, too, but I don't find that alone to be comfortable...

    Most Granite Gear packs come with an adjustable belt (the ReFit belt). I don't know what the specs are, but I'm sure mine would handle 46".

    Anything that involves being outside with a backpack is automatically off the "seriously annoying" list. I can sit at my desk for that.

    I use one as a ground cloth. I wouldn't rely on it for anything else. OTOH, you note that you've slept in it before for a night or two, so you have the experience to know if it's suitable for you.

    Yup, it's expensive, no getting around it. The nylon helps it last longer. But it just plain performs better, and like I said, the difference is dramatic. YMMV.

    I carry a cutoff milk jug and wash up at the end of the day for all the good reasons noted above.

    All the time. I prefer the ones with the waffle pattern, I think they call it Performance. The Armachillo doesn't work as well for me - tends to stick to the skin a bit.

    Bamforth & Taft are the most likely to be crowded, especially if you hit them on a weekend. Any of them are hit & miss. Puffer is my favorite - kinda dumpy as shelters go, but great location, and...

    if the pay scale is the same as when I was a caretaker, you'll be helping the caretaker, not the club! When I did it (1975), my only income came from the hikers that stayed & paid.
