[pct-l] MiniDisc players on the trail
I have a CD player with anti skip and took it into the Grand Canyon last month and
had no problems with the trail. Also I use head phones. . speakers weigh to much

Jetro Tull I am back on the trail!
The batteries lasted well over a week with 2 to 3 hrs of play a day.
