    A word about muti-purpose.

    All the suggestions so far have been right on. Those 3/4 length UQs are terrific for those who want no extra weight/bulk in the pack. But for those of us who do not hang as much as we wish we could,...

    Airport?

    Used to be there was a little airport in Groseclose, just outside Marion on Rt 81. Its not a commercial airport but if you have access to small planes, I think it is closer than Tri-cities.

  32. Will the snugfit be overkill in the warmer weather?

    What might you use for insulation in May, say? I've purchased the BB, a SpinnUL and am trying to decide on insulation for a ten day hike on the AT in Virginia in June.
