My living room is still covered with storage containers full of camping gear. When my pack arrives tomorrow I'll just have to pack up an average weekend's worth of stuff and see what it all weighs, as well as see what the few extras add such as a tarp and my hatchet.

It's inconceivable to think of a 35 lb pack. Even if I ditched the little one's things maybe it would weigh 40 lbs. I don't bring much excess clothing.
