      At a crossing that seems "iffy" I'll release my waist belt, chest strap, and take off one shoulder strap. When I purchase a new set of trekking poles the first thing I do is remove the wrist straps.

I figure that I made every mistake in the book. Better now than on the JMT so I feel like my many training hikes are providing some benefit of experience beyond the physical conditioning.
