My Locale Maroon Bells
About Me I was more of a BWCA guy but am getting into
backpacking because my wife loves it so much and
then we can do more together. On the sunset side
of 60. In 2008 and 2009 I spent more time backpacking than canoeing.

Packaging Weight
That seems pretty close to what I use but since I usually burn plastic every couple of days I have never weighed all of it upon getting home.

Mary and I should be able to make it that weekend. Since it is only about a 65 yard hike from the parking lot grilling would be in order.

I was curious about total weight per person and what type of cook gear did you use? Is she a cold sleeper and what type of bag did she have? Do you cook meals or just add hot water? Thanks.
