I did this 65 mile loop as an overnight, which was fun but pretty silly. If/when I do it again I'd try to camp at Fifty Mountain and Elizabeth Lake, and do it in three days. The loop itself was just outstanding, highly recommended.

As far as gear, I took my Talon 22, BPL 60 quilt, Patagonia down hoodie, E-Wing, esbit stove, etc. Only gap in equipment was using a 1/8" thinlight as my only pad. Pretty dumb. And I have to say that stopping at Swiftcurrant to have a late lunch of Fetuccinni and Meatballs and a beer on day two was really nice. Soft, I know.
