Ok, I've never seen the need to post my gear list before now. To be honest, I still don't. But I'm awake and I'm bored and I'm hiking Sunday from Unicoi Gap to Dick's Creek Gap, so I figured what the hell. Here, y'all have fun with this:

Hey wassup with the dried wet ones? Do they reconstitute if ya add water??Yep. Add cool water when it's hot outside, warm water when it's cool outside. :D

What no MP3? GPS? Compass? Nothing to control ear worms when you are lost?

List really looks OK Hooch, should have posted a total weight, you know - stand on the scale with one foot in the air....then take the pack off and stand in your underwear. - Do not pm with pic - I don't want to see it.

One can buy pre-dried cleaning pads in the skin care section at Target. Look for Olay Daily Facials. Much lighter than wet pads.

The advantage to carrying wet wipes wet is that they are instantly usable.

Your gear list looks a lot like mine but I use a Conduit. Seems like at most you would only need a Circuit. Both would save quite a bit of weight.

With my Conduit I use a small foam pad that I then can use as a sit pad or add to my 3/4 underquilt for under my lower legs.

The only other suggestion is that you could save some weight replacing the 550 cord with a thinner line like masonry line or Speers spectra line.

You'll definitely need a map, SPOT, and an iPod GPS MP3 cell phone with ear buds loaded with metal rap. Where's the gun and hollow point? I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume the Izula is a 12" combat blade. A small bottle of "I'm Pretty" moisturizer should help after the facial. Other than that, you should be OK for a day hike.

09-24-2009, 19:39

What a dumb list! The only thing on it I'd carry is toilet paper, and probably a different brand than you! :eek: :p
