1. A friend is planning to do the Jay Mountain Challenge Marathon in Vermont this July. There is a two to three mile stretch through streams, with stations a few miles before and after where she can leave a change of clothes, etc. She is thinking on the shoes that she might want to wear through this stretch of the race. She is also looking for a device to carry water and is not sure if she should go with a bladder system or a waste belt with a bottle or two. If anyone has any thoughts please e mail her at EStorey@Sliwa-Lane.com
2. I noticed the new pack reviews. Why bother to review packs that are too heavy for us?
