Balzaccom is right; you really don't need the stove or cooking pot for an overnighter! Those can wait. It sounds as though you're just about ready to get out and hit the trail! Do make sure you have all 15 of the "Ten" Essentials with you in some form or other. And have fun--that's what it's all about!

Please keep us posted on your progress! We love trip reports from those we've tried to help!
