    My luxury item is my Big Agnes Bellini camp chair. 1.7 oz of pure comfort. I use it after a long hike sitting in the campground around 4:20.

    I can vouch for the cheesecake. He has brought one to both of the winter group hikes we have been on together. The dang thing weighs almost six pounds.

    Default Hey Cool

    Cool,
    What kind of range do you get on that night vision? I've long thought of getting one to use in the midwest, but everything there is much larger scale and I've read they only work up to several hundred feet. Could you see heat trace on a mountain a mile away?

Here is a link to look at the specs (and to see the cost GASP!)

    This is just the first site that popped up when googled. I am sure you can probably find it cheaper if you looked.

    I nominate you for the most expensive pack on the trail probably EVER!!!

    You can get man sized signature ID'd at around 450 meters, but you can see heat flares much much further. Example, I could see the heat of a goat on the side of a hill but couldn't tell you it was a goat until I was under 500. Normally. For ultra long distance you need to divert a predator drone from Nellis.

    But seriously, I carry an old smartphone to use as my GPS. I keep track of all my hikes, distance, time, calories burned, etc. I use my new phone for emergencies, "come get me" phone calls, and for taking pictures/video. I recently purchased an Anker 20000 mAh charger to keep them full.

    I always have a small 3x5 notepad and pen so I can update my blog. I always carry either a folding map of the area or a photocopied map section of the area.

    But my one huge comfort I've been bringing lately is a book. I love falling asleep reading a book.
    Blaster, what application(s), did you use for GPS, distance, time, etc.?
