    Looks pretty darn comprehensive to me! Especially like the iPhone w/ headphones inclusion; I’ll do my best to provide you and the rest of MEGATEX with some good music (via my radio show) for this expedition.

      I plan to put together a post soon about how important it is to me to listen to music when I hike. I generally save battery power so that I can crank up tunes in the late afternoon, or if I’m headed up a big climb. The infusion of energy via music is like a chemical coursing though my veins, and with far fewer side effects!
