My Locale Norcal
About Me Hey, I'm looking for tips to go lighter and ideas for more trips. I've only been backpacking for 4 years and just recently realized my pack could've been MUCH lighter. I usually do two 9 day trips, three 5 day trips and a few weekend trips a year so I'd like to make the most out of the little time I have. I need to branch out of the same 'ol romps I frequent.

How much does it weigh? I'm sure the 2011 weights differs from the 2009 model.

Re: BSA discrimination policy :(
At first I just thought maybe they had the common misconception that if you don't have religion you can't have ethics but why only people who believe in Christ? No jews, really? Do they kno...

Re: trash on the JMT
@Micheal Like I said, it was just the first sixty and the last 10 miles where we saw intentional trash disposal on the trail. I probably picked up 10 band-aids/bandages, I found two trekking pole...
