    One thing you can do is write the important bearings on a piece of tape stuck to the bottom of your compass. Presumably, if hung around your neck, or otherwise attached to your person, it won't...

    I bet you a growler of your favorite craft beer that I can get anything you get me to wear soaked with sweat. Is it possible to hike dry? Yes. Is it practical? Hardly. I would still be hiking...

    If I wore that much stuff, I'd be seriously, seriously soaking wet in 5 minutes. Unless I was standing still. It has to be below zero with some good wind before I put on wind pants - mostly I wear...

    I typically do Monroe, Washington, Clay and Jefferson as a loop from the cog. Clay is worth going over on the way to Jefferson.
