Have you considered a Palm Pilot? Palm's Zire 72 has a lot of things a 
hiker wants in one package: a place to record your journal, MP3 player, 
expansion slot for additional memory (MMC cards), even a camera if you can 
get along with 1.2 MP images. You can get a compact wireless keyboard to 
use with it if you don't like writing on the screen or tapping on the 
optical keyboard.

I must be old fashioned. I prefer to write my journal on paper and I don't 
listen to the radio or portable music in the woods. I listen to the wind, 
the birds, running water and rain. That's music enough.
