    I see it as an opportunity to hop into a party for a little bit after a long week on the trail. Hearing it for the final mile or so will be great motivation to bring it on home.

    For $2k I could afford a whole new gear setup AND the plane ticket to get wherever I wanted. And have some left over to donate to the local trail club. So give it to me - I'll put it to better use.
