Subject: [pct-l] GPS on the PCT

                    Has any one hiked the PCT with a handheld Global
Positioning System?
Are they a good idea for the trail? I would like to hear pros & cons on
this subject.

I don't know why you'd want to.  What would you use it for?  A compass weighs
1 oz and doesn't require batteries.  You will have the guide book topo maps
anyways.  Sounds like a lot of weight and hassle to me.  GPS's are great, but
not on a thru-hike, IMO.
