You can do it, dropping 6 lbs is easy if you just look at what you're packing, and look for lighter alternatives. Look in the DIY section here for gear you can make, homemade is lots lighter than store-bought in many cases. I carry a 2-oz cat stove, use yellow HEAT for fuel, low-cost, quick heating, and doesn't leave soot on the bottom.
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intent of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, worn out, and loudly proclaiming Wow! What a Ride!
