A 15 kg pack would kill me! 11.6 is my MAX winter weight.

Iíd like to be able to say, I feel your pain, but I donít! lol
I donít like it. You live too close and will give me too many ideas, if you keep making videos... keep making them anyway.
Yes, a far cry from my hike a few weeks back. Wanted a easy hike for a change.
My pack weight prior to this hike used to be in excess of 20kg. That was a struggle to carry, but somehow I managed it for 4 weeks around Sydney back in March April of this year.
My feet are more of a problem for me than the pack weight. Blisters are a major problem on my heels, finding hiking shoes that fit me is a impossible task for me, believe me I've tried, spent a lot of dollars on hiking shoes in the past 6 months. I've resorted to finding the closest fit I can find and taking that to the local cobbler for some modifications, so far the boots are still not right, need more work done on those. Right now my priority is getting my feet healed and boots fitted, I don't want to suffer from blisters or pain any more.
The 15kg on my back, felt so much lighter. The 15kg does include food and water, 4 litres of water and 700grams of water. My base weight is 10.3 kg, I don't know how I can get that weight any lower, without spending a fortune. My pack weight is 2.5kg. but it's a very comfy pack, being a Aarn Load Limo.
There where no weight on my shoulders, I remember at the end of each day while in sydney how sore and tight my shoulders where at the end of the day. Not with the Aarn pack. That pack is so comfy to wear. I think it makes the weight feel lighter than what it is.
