EDIT:: FIELD REPORT:RITR All Weather Travel Journal (jim)
- Hi Jim thanks for the getting your field report in early. Here are
my edits, suggestions and nit picks.
In Backpacking Background:
I have also expanded my backpacking to include more winter trips,
mountaineering and back country cross country skiing, and
participated in the AMC's
I use a hammock or tarp for warm weather, and a small four season
tent for winter trips.
in Field Testing:
These trips included several days of camping at Raquette Lake in the

Climbed up to the sun and we met about 8:00 am.
### do you mean the sun or something like the sum (short for summit)?
Summitted at about 9:oo am."
### need 00 instead of oo after 9
This is when I take a few quiet moments to consider the events of the
day jot down a few notes.
### I think you left out the "and" between day and jot
I have found that the oil based ink of the Space Pen is a very happy

And, finally, the journal floats! And not just barely either.
### Although I like this sentence for its peppiness, it's not
grammatically correct. Consider rewording the double negative
of "not just barely"
The weather resistant features add a great deal of security, knowing
that this journal should survive to the end of the journey and
beyond, regardless of what I or the weather throw at it.
