I generally bring a pint of IPA in a can for each of the 1st two nights and that's it. I won't lug anymore than that along but I do plan trips that take me wandering back to my car where I can grab a couple more and keep on exploring if I want.

We're only a month away from our prime backpacking season here. The creeks are still running pretty good too so that should help make it a great season. I'm sure ready for some time in the forests.
