I am a hiker that likes to go out for at least a week at a time. I have a McHale custom pack that weighs too much, but it can carry as much or as little as I want. I now have a WBBB and an OES tarp. I use a White Box alcohol stove, and carry 3/4 oz of fuel per day, usually in a coke bottle. I use a GSI Hau Ti kettle to boil my water. I have tyvek for a ground sheet, should I need to sleep on the ground. I use a Prolite 4 pad, both in the WBBB and on the ground. I have 2 WM sleeping bags that open up to a quilt, so I take whichever one of them suits the temps I am expecting.
For my food I carry either an Ursack or a BV500, depending on government requirements. I have a small ditty for hygiene things, and another for 1st aid. My spare clothing usually consists of a change of socks and shorts. Gloves most times. Leather ones for rocky areas, and warm ones during the shoulder seasons.
Last Sept I went for 2 weeks into Yosemite, with a resupply in the middle. I carried about 35# at the beginning of each week, including the 10# of food and the 2# of BV. I am not an Ultralighter, and have no desire to become one. I have lightened up my load over the years, so it is easier on my body. Currently, I am trying to shave some weight off my personal frame, as that will do me more good than getting my base weight down to 9#.
