    Lyle, this is the most salient point, and by that I mean “ease of use”, not specifically page flipping. A guidebook is something that thru-hikers will use multiple times a day for 4-6 months.

    No, there are no holes, and little margin in which to punch any. A ziplock is about the only way to contain it, and there's little choice but to use maildrops to get sections. It's sounding like...

    I collect trail data independently and conform my results to match “official” ATC mileage. The total (2185.9) is the same in the 2013 Data Book and in The A.T. Guide 2013.
