Yeah looks like it to me, and positive rather than negative. So add for grid and subtract for mag i guess.

In reply to Withnail: I got the nose guard at amh, which is over the road from REI. Got the map there too iirc.

rEI is well good for freeze dried, gels and GU brew. If you're buying in bulk you should be able to haggle extra discount. cliff bars are cheaper at Fred meyer.

Good luck
