I'm sure Ray Jardine is one of those high-metabolism types who is toasty warm sleeping at night with just a light quilt. I'm not like that. I freeze to death in June going out for coffee at the Daily Grind. I'll probably be one of those unlucky people who gains weight hiking 20 miles a day on 2000 calories.
I'm not sure what I can possibly economize on. I guess I'll just hike slow.
