    At the Ozark hang last spring I had a ten foot pop up shelter in the truck. At the first hint of heavy rain shower, I went and got it and set it up near the fire. Everyone pulled in the bag chairs and the conservation continued.

    They are two different animals, but for me I prefer backcountry camping. This usually means that I am forced to hike for a few miles to a backcountry campsite where I'll stay a night or two. So, what I pack is the same for hiking or camping because I have to hike to camp.

    The "heavy" luxury items that hikers would chastise me for carrying? A WBBB, Crowsnest, Black Diamond Orbit lantern, Bahco/Kershaw folding saw, a Snow Peak 700 to drink from and a Snow Peak 900 to eat from (I don't like eating from a bag), extra clothing to layer, and a Danish Larsen pipe with some Latakia tobacco.

    I haven't been to a hang yet, but I've found myself planning what I would pack for one... it's a very different list than what I've ever used for hiking. A lot of the extra stuff is enough food to cook at least one dinner and one breakfast (including a half slab of country bacon, which lasts 10 days without refrigeration... and weighs 4-5 lbs.) for the entire gang... but then I like to cook--especially for other people. Unfortunately, my favorite cookware is cast iron (though I don't normally use it on trail) and that made it onto my list as well.
    ... Darn my love of cooking for people!

    the Kitchen sink

    Bring it all for car camping. Have a whole Cabelas or LL Bean in the trunk. Folks will verify that I did just that at the last VT/NE hang. 100lb pack, extra bag.

    For hiking, minimalist. Survival gear only. Light is right. Think the three "W's" of layering: Wicking, Warmth, Weather.

    Wicking:: A base layer to move your sweat away from your body so you don't chill, or end-up with hypothermia.

    Warmth:: Light, wool or fleece layers to pickup the moisture, and provide air traps for your body heat to keep you temperate.

    Weather:: Liughtweight outerwear or shell that is water proof, yet breathable.

    Cooking gear: stove, cup, maybe even a pan.

    Food: Lightweight, repackaged, dehydrated

    Tools: good knives.

    Water:: Purification system (First Need XL)

    Shelter:: Hammock and Tarp, of course!


    A lot of this crosses over ... just for the hiking it gets pared way down.

    When car camping I usually leave behind the bear canister and bring the dutch ovens (at least 2), maybe a camp stove, a real pillow, 2 camp chairs (somebody always forgets theirs), a book, more clothes and fresh food.



    ps- I posted the word document below in the "what's your favorite backcountry meal" thread. Any comments about it would be appreciated.

    Did I just get proposed to in a forum? from someone I've never actually met .... Awesome!

    ... but I'll have to decline. Not ready to marry yet, I'm only 21.

    PS--yes I'm fully aware it was most probably in jest.... but on the internet you never know.
