    Yep, hoodies are so versatile, and are great for instant thermal control.

    Better yet is a 1/4 zip hoodie, which I suppose most are anyway.

    Cool article, and it supports the point that GPS's are plenty accurate for not getting lost. What's a dozen meters?

    Anyone hitting the CDT this spring?

    Just curious... there doesn't seem to be any "CDT action" (or PCT, for that matter) on here, so I thought I might as well give a western trail a "bump".

    I'm going to hit the CDT in late March...
