As to not clutter this tread I thought it would be interesting to discuss backpacking with minimal amount of gear, Duane brought up that there are organized trips where people can only take 11 items. Do any of you have experience with these trips? If so what did you bring? If not what would you bring? At the very least it will be fun to speculate.

If I was forced to pick it would be:
1 backpack
2 quilt
3 sleeping pad
4 poncho tarp
5 trekking pole
6 headlamp
7 water bottle
8 water filter/aqua mira
9 lighter
10 Metal cup
11 spoon

Man that's tough. I know I'm missing something obvious!
