I give up, time to try this ultralight nonsense...
Getting lighter is a process that begins with buying a $30 postal scale that will measure up to 5 pounds, in 1 gram increments, and setting up a spreadsheet (or use GearGrams).
Depending on the season, my skin out weight (without consumables) varies between 10 to 15 pounds. When crampons and snowshoes are needed, then it creeps up to near 20 pounds. That's everything from my shoes to my toothbrush.
I am somewhat aggressive in finding ways to lose weight, but there are many out there that are much lighter. I carry a 4" camp knife, GPS, cell phone, etc. I pack for 10* lower than the weather forecast, am always prepared for rain, take an extra meal and snack. In other words, I'm still safe.
I wouldn't enjoy myself either with a 65 pound pack. Imagine carrying only 1/3 of what you are now. Use that spreadsheet to prioritize your gear replacement program, but first, simply leave the stuff you don't need at home!
Both Shug and Fronkey did videos on their pack contents, and they hike in Minnesota! Hook up with some other hangers that backpack here in the forum. You can see what gear they use and then chose what is right for you.
