    I buy paper guidebooks, and have no problem letting someone else read or borrow them. Someday, I might try guthooks or something, but I'm still fond of paper maps - their batteries last forever.

    I use a bit of Armor-all, or other silicone lubricant. Vaseline or other petroleum-based lubricants can affect the rubber o-ring in the stove. Better to use silicone or wax. I also keep my stove...

    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.

    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.
