    We seem to share a lot of the same gear..........camera, ultra-pod, pot, hiking poles. Good taste for sure.

    Great gear video. I will be doing the same trek next year and wanted to see what you carried. Thank you for all of the suggestions for what you use. I will be checking out that pack it looks small enough, but able to carry everything necessary.

    Seeing what others use is always good. It helps me learn more and the video was both fun and informative and I love your hiking buddies.

    During your opening, I shared your panic. What a nightmare!
    I got my gear they way it is by learning from others too. Thanks for watching.

    A lot of my gear is from taking things I've read/watched and seeing what works for me. You, Skurka, skygzr to name a few. I don't drink coffee and eat my breakfast after I've broken down camp and started hiking. But, my gear and food is for sure different when I'm not trying to crank out miles.

    Are you asking how low in temperature? If so, I've hit 21f with this gear and wasn't even wearing all my clothes. I bet I could do about 15f if I wore everything. Lower if I let tala sleep in the hammock.
