    So I am 16 1/2 pounds fully loaded. If I can lose a few pounds this week on my middle I will compensate....
    Wow I have been trying to cut the weight but I am at about 17.25 pounds as a base, about 6.5 on food. Figure I will be 30 total with water. Guess I need to start working on it more lol

    Skygzr, that ridgerunner is awfully comfortable. Totally worth the weight.

    I'm increasing my insulation, so I'll be back up to just under 12lbs for a base weight.
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    This sucks!!!

    Missed another one!

    I have been gone from the forum for nearly 6months and I missed this one due to some prior engagements and just lack of fitness to complete the hike at this time...but next time I hope to be in better shape time and physically!

    Hope everyone enjoys themselves and STAY SAFE!!!

    O.H.

    no don't do it- the lower you go the lower the temps will go. stay positive. everyone should just bring a fleece blanket and that is it...

    Snore on. I justify the weight by stating the recovery of muscle after a long hike,due to a good nights sleep. One note of caution though,if you try to pee over the side on a cold windy night to save heat, you will pee in your saddle bag when it blows up in front of you.
    Any plans for hiking pole spreader bars?

    Scary thought. I'm bringing my down lol. Might even get cold enough to use it. Although friday looks like it may have excessive humidity
