My plan is to keep the weight in the 15-20lb range. The three heaviest items now are:

  • Sleeping bag - original Blue Kazoo (shifting down, which they will pry from my cold, dead, hands) at 1,280g, 2.8lb
  • Lightning UL2 tent 1,770g, 3.9lb
  • Food/stove/fuel - I am using the cat stove with 4oz of heet and a small (2 cup) titanium pot. All of this is weighing in at about 2,267g, 5lb, including a bear container reqd by the NPS.
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!
