    Anything from Lincoln Gap to Route 15 is great, but the peaks will be crowded on the weekends.

    Less weight, less space in the pack are the only reasons I have. I've always used torso length - never slept on a full length pad, so I don't know what I'm missing.

    Forest City/LongTrail/Burrows Trail loop. The scramble from Montclair Glen has great views of the mountain as you climb. As a half-day you'd have to move along at a good pace.

    For both of the above reasons, reflectix is something I use solely to augment my real pad/insulation! It's cheap, and also makes nice cozies for your pot & cup.

    I've used reflectix under my air pad for a bit of additional insulation, and as protection for the pad. Used in on the ground and in the hammock. It definitely adds some r-value to the set up,...

    I highly recommend a 1 or 2 night first trip, with a heavy lean to 1. Your kids will enjoy it and your wife will forgive you.

    I couldn't stay awake on the couch at 720 calories per day - that's only 2 or 3 pints of decent beer. You've done the math in the lab, let us know how it translates to the field.
