Re: JMT hike starting August 5th. Will I see any of you out there?

Re: Re: Feedback desired - JMT list (15.72lb)
Ken, Well, the 15.72lb is indeed actual base weight (i.e., carried on my back); so unfortunately, I don't get to knock off a big chunk in this case. If I included worn items, I'd be at ...

JMT Mosquito & H20 update
