    Like Slumgum said, MD doesn't have much elevation change, but it is a bit of a rocky trail so you have to watch your footing. There will likely be leaves on the trail and if they are wet, they are...

    Nothing you could do about the situation at the time. Moving on would have been the best plan. I would have dressed the leader up and down and loudly before I left though.

    Hum, apparently it took him 10 months to hike the AT. That's really slow. He'd best cut his losses and go home. He was lucky this time.

    When I use the neoair, I blow it up tight, then after I lay down on it I let out just enough air so that my hip sinks into it a bit. This helps to keep me centered on the pad and not roll off it.
