Great point. This last trip out (I just returned), I did not have everything I needed. I had everything I thought I needed. I was prepared for the summer, this is late spring...a cool and wet late spring. From someone who loves a light pack, I want to ensure that my next trip out is more comfortable and less likely to end 17 miles from the planned exit point.
