A new place to spend money

Today I went into Mountainaire Sports, looking for USGS maps and hiking shoes. I found the maps and looked at the shoes. I also saw many other things of interest: dried foods, lightweight emergency covers (that stuff that looks like aluminum foil that keeps the heat in), many other goodies. I bought the maps, three of them, plus a teeny light that can hook onto my backpack. It is the size of a key ring and puts out a lot of light, using batteries similar to those in cameras. I had wanted a flashlight both in case I am on a trail late in the day and in case I get into a dark part of a forest. This thing practically weighs nothing and takes no room because I can clip it onto my backpack.

I looked at trail guides but they didn't have any for the Big Sur area, oddly enough. More guides for rock climbing than for hiking. Nice clothing, Patagonia and other nice brands. Stuff to want. I needed this, all right, something else to spend money on. Really, it isn't such a terrible thing.
