Hi Sharon,

About the single-use cameras...  They seem to take excellent pictures. 
My dad is a professional photographer and was a bit chagrined at the
quality of photos taken by my mother with one of those on a recent trip
they took to the carribean!  (She helps him pose people in their
business, but isn't a photo-gear head like him!)  I think the
water-proof version would be a logical choice for the trail, but I'm not
sure how durable they are.  Maybe someone else 'round here knows how
much abuse they'll take?

Also, I have to agree with you.  This list is the best thing, I've found
on the net!  People are friendly and helpful -- very refreshing from all
the noise elsewhere.  I think all the new folks, me included, should do
our best to keep it this way.
