I'm finally done buying stuff, well, at least the big expensive things. I've been slowly putting together my hiking gear for the past 4 years. Almost all advice and suggestions coming from this forum, WB and PBF. My final purchase was going to be a cuben tarp, but I simply can't justify $300 to save ~10 oz. Especially when I it's so easy to drop a few pounds by simply dieting 2 weeks before I hike. Some of my gear isn't the lightest, the best, or the most sexy, but then again some is. Of course, I have a bunch of other misc stuff, this is just the big items. These work for me, and I'm happy to announce that I'm done buying stuff...well, at least until I can fit the Appalachian Trail into my schedule.
Thanks to all on these forums for all your freely provided suggestions, advice, and wisdom.
