[at-l] Hiking fog-blind



Yesterday's outing was great..cheap gear worked great!  Temp 11 to 15.
One problem.  I had to choose to either expose my nose or fog my 
sunglasses.  The turtle fur balaclava is a toasty thing but it channeled
my breath vapor up to my glasses and they fogged.  The sun came on 
strong by 11:00 and I had to use the sun glasses against the snow glare.
So....I could keep my nose warm and hike blind or see well and freeze my 
nose.    Any suggestions?		Kahley

FYI: That reference of "1980's" is direct from the department of tourism
in Australia.
