My Locale John S. hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me Originally from Louisiana, I enjoyed camping in my Boy Scouting days and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Many years later (2002), I discovered backpacking after going on an REI multisport trip to Alaska. My first backpack was to Grand Canyon, and I was hooked!

Re: EDC camera
According to my snooping around, you won't beat the deal on the Canon Powershot S110. Others might be Nikon Coolpix P340 Leica C Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1
