I wear the throw-aways. I leave them in for two weeks,then throw them away.
I would think if you were doing the entire trail, you could pick these up at
mail drops as well as keep a spare set in the pack. Just carry a little
re-wetting solution and you're set. I used to wear the extended wear lenses
but went to throwaways for about the same cost, maybe slightly more.
