It is time to go out on a backpacking trip. I realized I haven't been out in a while and I have a small back log of gear that I need to take out for testing. At least the number of items I currently have out is small and multi-purpose. I can't wear the rain gear anymore as it is simply too hot, but the shorts and bug dope I can use while day hiking and kayaking.
The trip planned is a small 9 mile over night trip. 5 miles in, 3 miles out. I am trying to see if I can get my pack weight below 20 lbs. I keep hitting that mark but I haven't been able to go below. So with summer here and no need for heavier winter gear, I am going to see how low I can go.
