[at-l] Re: Re Re Re my gear list

I've gotten real attracted to the combination DEET and sunblock. OFF makes 
a product, but there are others. With sunblock, you need to anticipate 
using about 1 1/2 ounce per day for all the exposed skin. With exercise, 
you may need more. YMMV

There is a problem with binge exercise like binge dieting. If you do the 
two together, I'd anticipate a dramatic yo-yo of weight gain. I have seen 
it in this hiker and heard of it in others. Certainly, not in anyone I 
know! ;-)
