D-- A) I love your writing style; it is quite communicative, and
communicates perfectly the same *spirit* which all of us share, no
matter the level of prior experience. "Keep up the good work!" Please!
B) Speaking from "Marathoner" land (where I am an *infrequent*
visitor), water needs are a function of "time up" as much as miles.
But I think you've figgured that out anyway, haven't you......--TMc

Whew! Thank's so much to those of you who have taken the time to
encourage me (and say you want to read these posts). ;-) I would
probably think I was crazy to be trying this if it weren't for all the
wonderful voices taking these early efforts seriously.
My total water usage for the 5 miles (approximate length of each day
planned for the 3-day hike) was 8 liters. It would have been nice to not
have to stop and take off the pack to get water.
