[at-l] Hiking in the Rain

Just speaking for what works in my experiment of one...I really enjoy
my umbrella, which gets more than a few snickers, I'll admit, but also
keeps me quite dry by comparison to wearing rain gear and generating a
lot of body heat while walking.  My initial complaint had to do with
having to hold it, but I worked that out with some cable ties and only
have to watch out for the low hanging tree branches that tend to catch
the little lightning rod thingy on top!
