I just can't understand why anyone on THE trip of a lifetime (and, by now,
I've been about everywhere), would be concerned about saving money. In
addition. I can't imagine going ANYWHERE without having maps of all the
places that I could see from a pass or a peak-really lets you feel your
place in the world.

Pick your poison. Heavy or light;  fabric or leather or suede. They've all
go plusses and minuses.
 I think Ray Jardine is a terrific guy, but most people will not even WANT
