I don't know if I am too heavy or not. But I am getting ready for my first real live overnight hiking trip. I am all packed up and weighed my pack. Lows are forecast for 20*F this weekend here on the mountain. But first here is what I am carrying.
Food for two full days
Gallon of water (trail is really dry I am hiking, it is a ridge trail)
Silk bag liner
Extra set of thermals
Extra set of Socks
Thats about it except for maybe a couple of other camp necessities. I am sort of worried about my weight though. I just weighed in at 32 pounds. That is food, water, everything. So is that too much? I can't think of anything I might can trim. So I am just fretting it for no reason? i had been doing day hikes with 20-25 pounds thinking I could get it down to that with everything. On top of the weight, my Vapor Trail is stuffed to the gils as well.
