 Shelter, Sleep System, and Pack all under 5 pounds
There isn't exactly a section for this, but I was excited and wanted to share!
My big three comes in at 4.38 pounds and it looks like my baseweight will be right around 12 pounds including the bear canister. To see my big three: http://www.trailtosummit.com/2014/06/th ... ounds.html

If anyone is looking to lighten their packs, I'm also doing a talk in Newburyport on June 24th. You can register for the event here:

I just switched to a GG Gorilla and absolutely love it. Took it out for a 12 mile overnight shakedown this weekend. I felt like I was cheating.

Also just upgraded to a Tarptent Notch. Again, I feel like I'm cheating.

I admire you going with a floorless shelter. I'm not that brave. My big three weighs 5.9lbs. I'm also old so I want a little more "comfort". :D

When I'm camping in the Whites I prefer my Warbonnet Hammock. On the West Coast floorless will be good!

Wow, that's some light gear. I've lightened up on a couple items but still no where near 5 lbs.
I'm at about 9 1/4 lbs with a BA Fly Creek UL2, Osprey Exos 46, NF Cats Meow 20', and a Z-Lite pad. The Flt Creek UL2 is a great 1 person tent for me and my gear. The Exos 46 carries fine as long as you are under 27lbs. The NF Cats Meow is an inexpensive bag, but I could easily save 1+ lbs by going with a WM or a Montbell- but big bucks.
Interesting to see what other folks are using......

I watched the Netflix documentary on the John Muir: "Mile, Mile and a Half". Looks beautiful out there.

Petch,

I found Mile...Mile and a Half on kickstarter a while back and they sent me a copy to do a review. They're a nice bunch of people. I had thought about doing a longer trek and was thinking about JMT vs the Long Trail. Once I saw the documentary I made up my mind! I like VT but it's close enough that I could always hike it later!
