UhOh - this will begin the inevitable Ginger-versus-Mary Ann debate
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

 :icon_lol:  Not until you mentioned it, DP.  As for me, it's Mary Ann all the way.

I'll brag on my incredible luck - I've had the best of both, in one woman. 

(The following should not under any circumstances be leaked to the delightful JPrather).

During our 44 years together (2 dating plus 42 married) I have enjoyed her Ginger and her Mary Ann. 

True story: during the semester of our engagement, after registering for 18 hours, I had to drop all but six (6) due to a little too much Ginger in my diet.

Are you going with the "clothing optional" version?
temperatures exceed 100 degrees F
minimum 1 gallon water per person/day
no shade, no water

At this point, we both resemble the Howells, so no - we'll maintain plausible deniability by keeping our clothes on.
