Thus far I believe I will be carrying the lightest pack than on any of my other trails. Couple of questions though for the purpose of switching out gear.
Temperature: I have the option of carrying a lighter bag as oppose to the 15 degree. More summer like bag suggested for new mexico or wyoming basin area? or play it safe and take the one bag for the whole trip.
Bugs: when I was out on the divide last summer I was sooooo happy to have a tent, the bugs that I witnessed at some points the worse I have ever seen on any trail. With the option of being able to carry my tent fly alone for shelter, I can bounce up the body of the tent for colder temps and bugs any suggestions where I can get away just carrying the fly?
Best place to pick up ice axe maybe snowshoes, northbound - chama????
