    PMBAR gear

    Does a riding jacket count as a rain jacket if it is water proof? I would rather not buy a jacket for the race if I don't have too.

    If it:

    is waterproof/resistant

    and

    has full sleeves

    then it's OK. What I really want you guys to have along is not necessarily a jacket for the rain that may or may not occur but one to keep you from dying from hypothermia if you get lost and spend the night in the woods.

    Cheers!

    I can tell you it was damn cold last year when we were running close on time and the rain started. I was happy to have the jacket

    But getting lost is part of the fun right? :-D

    I am nervous about the passports. I liked having the spots actually on the map.
