This sounds like a really good idea except, one of the reasons that I went
hiking for six months through the wilderness was to get away from the daily
time schedules, body function sincronizations and calendar watching.  I
reveled in the resetting of my mind and body to the calendar of weather and
the clock of the sun.  A watch was not on my list of required or luxury
items and I guarantee will not be missed by your mind or by the weight it
would bare on your body.  Don't bother carrying a watch.  The only argument
against this that I can think of is to better coordinate with Post Office
hours in picking up supply boxes.  My journal reminded me of the date and
clocks are plentiful in town.
