Don't Be That Guy!!!

I know that there's a saying that what happens on the trail stays on the trail, but I feel I have to take this opportunity to show you what can happen when you don't prepare properly for a hike. Dehydration can set in and drastic measures must be taken. So please use these links so you don't have to stoop to these levels.

The ones I use more often appear on the top. Some of them are great non-comercial sites made by people just like me, for the hell of it. Others are more official and contain a lot more information than I would ever use.
