My Locale Western US
About Me Mostly 2 to 3 day loops, with a couple weeklong trips too, likely going 2 weeks or more with upcoming severance. 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: Re: Quick - best desert water bottle
Go get two or three 1.5 liter bottled waters The thicker brands should be relatively tough, I suppose. Aluminum vs plastic 1.5 L bottles is the actual decision.
