    Oh God I remember Mt Horrid. Hot, sweaty, buggy, and straight up from the road crossing.

    While I did like the LT map, this would have been a nice addition to our kit.

    I thought the long trail map was just about the perfect map. Possible because the trail was straight and it could be put on just a few panels.

    Just got my copy. Nice looking maps, but I donít see the shelters annotated on the detail map? An oversight? Not in available data sets?

    Postholer, they seem organized as Skurka's HDT, SHR, WRR, and SEKI Traverse mapsets but taking a "here's the trail" approach? Can we make that comparison?

    That's correct. We'll make that available as we get it!

    The layout is the same I've used for all my maps since 2011. I'm not sure what Skurkas look like. All our maps are a work in progress, thus the annual or near annual updates. I'm always getting new data!
