    Thanks - I have been offered a rain jacket by a local. It'll be too big for me, but in that case maybe I'll just cover my daypack too, which isn't bad. Belt /strap with poncho usually reduces...

    A friend of mine once told me that she left off her rain fly overnight (southeastern USA) and her bag was quite damp from condensation/dew in the morning, despite no rain. Might also depends on where...

    Humphreys Peak, late June

    Looking for recommended tweaks to a typical southeastern US dayhike gear list for use at Humphreys Peak in Northern AZ later this month. I'm usually pretty careful and don't skimp on the essentials. ...

    Higher r-value pad.
    Suppose for the moment your Burrow's 20F rating is an EN bag rating. Whether it is officially or not, suppose it is, for the sake of argument.

    Could you provide a citation for your claim about NC requiring the container be 5 oz or less? I don't know of any bear spray that is sold in that size.

    You seem very certain. How can you be sure that a bear that associates tents with food is going skip checking out yours? You think it can tell you have used a canister instead?

    Either not enough of them do, or that's not all that solid of an endorsement.

    FWIW it's my understanding that soap + water >> sanitizer.

    Wow, and I thought the real dead horse was all the stuff about "he's only gone X miles"

    You mentioned that tape around the little toe didn't help. What kind of tape did you use? I have had good luck with 3M/Nexcare cushioned waterproof tape.

    What a relief those days are over! ;)
