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: 2 person space blanket
I would like to second the space blanket. If you're carrying one anyway, why not use it as a groundsheet? I'm using mine while camping or on picknicks and it's still going strong. Eins

Re: Komperdell Contour poles
Hmmm, looks like I made a mistake. I'll put them on my scale the moment I'll get home tonight. Probably it's 7 oz per pole. We'll see. Eins
