    I stay there often. It's a relatively quiet campground, nice. Showers work, etc. Close to many trailheads.

    But that doesn't make sense. I pee in the middle of the trail to mark my territory. What good is a mark if I have to cover it up.

    While I may have installed that sign, I was not the one who provided its spelling. I would would have done it even worse.

    It doesn't make a difference either, because it's not even one of the 46.

    Then there are those who don't do a 'round' but do a single peak hundreds of times.

    To me, 'grid' has the implication of a challenge to be done, rather than just doing something.

    The best way to find it is to pass it and go back. It'll take 45-60 seconds.

    I know that here, at MEC they sell just the sliding thingy for (I think) $0.50. You don't even need a kit.

    Sun is a great deodorizer. Leave them out in the hot sun for a week or so. Just make sure to 'oil' the leather parts to prevent them from drying up.

    It's a typical fire tower hike. Easy, flat, then short and steep. Trail is the same one I remember from 40 years ago.
