I am a hiker that likes to go out for at least a week at a time. I have a McHale custom pack that weighs too much, but it can carry as much or as little as I want. I now have a WBBB and an OES tarp. I use a White Box alcohol stove, and carry 3/4 oz of fuel per day, usually in a coke bottle. I use a GSI Hau Ti kettle to boil my water. I have tyvek for a ground sheet, should I need to sleep on the ground. I use a Prolite 4 pad, both in the WBBB and on the ground. I have 2 WM sleeping bags that open up to a quilt, so I take whichever one of them suits the temps I am expecting.
For my food I carry either an Ursack or a BV500, depending on government requirements. I have a small ditty for hygiene things, and another for 1st aid. My spare clothing usually consists of a change of socks and shorts. Gloves most times. Leather ones for rocky areas, and warm ones during the shoulder seasons.
Last Sept I went for 2 weeks into Yosemite, with a resupply in the middle. I carried about 35# at the beginning of each week, including the 10# of food and the 2# of BV. I am not an Ultralighter, and have no desire to become one. I have lightened up my load over the years, so it is easier on my body. Currently, I am trying to shave some weight off my personal frame, as that will do me more good than getting my base weight down to 9#.

This is all I have dug out of my cupboard and I think it is everything:
Be who you are and say or do what you will, for those who matter don't mind and those who mind don't matter.

My current setup...
Other than clothes and food, this is my setup. I take out anything I don't need depending on the conditions.
On My Person
Pack Rain Cover
Sleeping Bag/Pad (I use a Big Agnes 15d with a 15d insulated air core pad that works great for me, hanging or on-ground.)
Water bottles (Nalgene x2)
Stove – Pot – Mess Kit
Stakes (my fav MSR)
Flash Bag (attached to main pack)
Reflect Blanket (works great under the Big Agnes if it's really cold)
Tarp (lines for hanging pre-attached)
3-4 trash bags
oh... and my flash bag has 2L bladder in it.
