Yesterday and today I didn't hike as such. What I did do was walk around Fry's and Safeway yesterday, and the downtown REI today. Damn that place is huge. I got everything on my list and more because a lot of stuff was on sale and if I was going to get it anyway I might as well save some money. Right?

Tomorrow I'll be back to walking the trails around the office but I picked up some maps at REI today so I can pick out a trail or two to hit on the weekends. I also picked up a compass and whistle for the Cascade Orienteering Club meet on Saturday. (I also picked up some wool hiking socks, a hat, gloves, first aid kit and a key holder to keep all the small things like flashlight, whistle, mini multi-tool and laser pointer.

If you're ever looking for a thermal cup, I can't recommend REI's (http://www.rei.com/product/794391) strongly enough. If you don't open it, it keeps things hot for hours. And it has a built-in infuser in case you want loose-leaf tea or your tea bag breaks. Only problem is you have to manually unscrew the cap and remove it to take a drink, but mine have never leaked when closed. The first one I got--the sippy insert did shear apart when I over-tightened it, but they exchanged it, and I haven't had any issues with the replacement.

Thanks! I've never used one before but then again I never went backpacking in the winter. Only camping and it was pretty much car camping at that.
