I don't subscribe to any phone-based stuff (no smart phone) and am not on facebook. I did leave a comment on Alan's blog. The weight issue has been debated here ad nauseum. I don't really care that much, but I find my system is about average in weight with a lot of tent systems. We all make our decisions on what weight we think is worth the effort to carry. I don't carry a camp chair or any baking-type cooking stuff. Many really like to have one or both of those things on their trips. Some prefer an absolute minimalist set up like a tarp-poncho, quilt, and tyvek ground cloth. All valid choices as folks decide what is important for their best camping experience. It's just great to see folks smiling while out!
