Hi John, Matt and Agnes submitted a gear list yesterday. They are working on the trip report. Baseweight in their packs was about 21 lbs. More was carried on their sleds of course.

I really enjoyed the article Jay! Ivy and Elly are real troopers. You gave me lots of good ideas for getting my 2 year old niece on the trail.

Re: WTB: G5 hyperlite silnylon
I have the G5 Spinnaker. $50 plus $5 shipping. Note that it is spinnaker, not silnylon. Good shape except some small holes in the waist belt fabric.

I have a set of the original Gossamer Gear poles. Very bendy. Length about 123 cm. I ordered 120 cm length but they are a bit longer than that. I used them exclusively (and liked them) until I got ...

Tilley LT5
