Does anyone watch the show "Mantracker"? I LOVE that show personally, but I've noticed an on going trend with the contestants...
How come a majority of them seem to have packed everything but the kitchen sink in their oversized 7000+cc bags for a 2 day trip??? Not to mention the fact that they are running away from someone who is trying to catch them. If it was me, I'd pack a rain poncho, tarp, sleping bag, maybe a heavy fleece depending on where I am and how cold it is, and some no cook food in the smallest backpack I could find. To me, this is the PERFECT situation in which ultralight (or even super ultralight) practices would be very beneficial.
