I am writing today to see what kinds of tips and tricks that you have used to lighten your load and get you pack weight down. I know all too well how having a rediculously heavy pack can ruin the true peacefulness that backpacking is supposed to offer. I have some stuff up on my blog that is the process that I go through to get stuff culled out of my pack and I am always looking for new ideas to make my load a little lighter. If you have any ideas that you dont see then please let me know. I would like to open the floor to see if anyone has any tips that they can give me below in order to lighten my load.
