About Me Mostly 2 to 3 day loops, with a couple weeklong trips too. Debating whether to go 2 weeks or more. Lightening up but with an eye towards toughness and hiking convenience (secure drying on the trail. quick set up, etc...), but also a bit better food (and beverage) for most overnights. Then again I might want to do a spartan "fast n'light" overnight ... and the gear closet grows.
I'll update my gear list tomorrow ...

Re: Florida Boy going cross country skiing
The downhill ski jacket might be too warm to wear while XC skiing but might be good at rest stops or during an emergency. Typical layering should work; in fact you may have to go with just baselay...
