ugh just found this thread and I'm at work.... maybe some lunch time viewing is in order!
Read your original post. I'd be happy to help bring that pack weight down. If you ever want my speadsheets just give a holla.
While I'm not blind I do have terrible vision (-6) in both eyes and my night vision is not so great for hiking which is why I hike during the day 99% of the time. In my last adventure Gear Slug tried to meet me at night and got turned around TWICE and made it back to the trail head. I've decided the only time I will hike at night is with someone else who can keep me on point.
Waiting to view your videos at lunch......
