About Me Started hiking somewhere around Y2K, with a 50 pound pack, incl. food, water and fuel.
That dropped down to ~37 pounds incl. f, w & f, which wasn't that bad concidering traditional gear and food for ten days!
Than the UL bug bit me and my gear weight dropped and dropped to a baseweight of ~10 pounds for my Scotland-16-day-Solo.
Going solo for 3 days two nights max, baseweight is down to 4lbs2; Going solo for longer baseweight is down to 8lbs2.

Re: Re: Re: OMM pads and stuff
Well thanks so far. The consensus seems to be to go back to an inflatable. Interesting to see that as one gets lighter, a transitions is made from sleeping on a self infaltable to a lighter non inf...

Re: Carry-On UL Packs
I like carry-on travel very much, done a lot of it last year. But for backpacking just go for the duffle option. I've done that a couple of times and works great. And you can carry your stove, ...
