There are so many! Each has some really great features. Gaia Here's the deal. One of the most advanced mapping options out there. More than 100 map options. Even classic 1930's Topo. I don't dig the app interface. BUT that is just my opinion. I use Gaia in conjunction with my Garmin 66i. Alltrails I use it as one of my tools. I like the map building interface. I like the tracking. REI Hiking Project This app has legs. It will only get better when people contribute.

So I would like to comment on this 🙂 Urine is indeed sterile...before it exits your body. However, lets take a deeper look here. Each of us has what is called "Normal Flora" - These are organisms that are normal to "us". So urine is sterile only in a personal sense. For example - if you have a urinary tract infection, your urine carries all those things that would make your skin crawl if you saw it under a microscope. Is it sterile? Yes - because it has not left your body yet. Urine stile carries everything we don't need. So if you have a pee rag, and you leave it on your bag - the no longer sterile urine will touch things that it comes in contact with. How many of us has seen a "pee rag" that has fallen off on trail? You ask yourself when you see that hanky "is it...or is it not?" The good hiker would pick it up - for conservation and for courtesy. However a pee rag lost on trail is just as bad as dropping food and/or anything else. If you use a pee rag - make sure it is secure...and wipe that bag when you get off trail...or that pee of yours will be on every single trip there after!
