Does anyone have suggestions or comments about what you have found to be a reliable thermometer to use on the trail?
I picked up an AcuRite thermometer and played around with it. My freezer took it down to -5. The picture compares it to another larger digital thermometer as well as an old fashioned thermometer from Atlanta Gas Light Company.
The High / Low recording is automatically reset every 24 hours. This reset point is determined whenever you engaged the battery for the first time. There is a plastic strip you pull out to allow the battery to make contact with the circuits. I 'set' mine for ~9:00 PM figuring this would allow me to see the previous evenings low temp as well as the high temp for the day. You can reset this point by pulling the battery, waiting a few minutes and then pushing the battery back into the thermometer.
