Hey Fronkey, another fan of your videos, and this one's no exception. I personally intend to pack light every time but in reality I don't think I'll ever get to sub 10lbs except maybe on a overnight-er. I have developed a lot of "favorites" over the years and not taking them has proven to be difficult. Of course some have gotten lighter as newer versions replace them. One replacement for example was my stove. Can you say Coleman Peak1? I guess my main reason for not packing as light as I should is the fact that every time I go out I want to stay longer. I once went out for a weekend hike in the White Mountains of NH that took a month!
