   Don't get me too far off base... I use the ear plugs only in noisy
places, ie; shelters, hostels, inns, etc.

   High Pocket (90, I think) passed out earplugs at Woods Hole; he's a
notorious noise maker...

   I rely on my tent for about 85% of my hiking; a hostel, inn or motel once
a week or ten days is my idea of getting my act back to hiking....

  still looking for the perfect hike,
