tahoe rim trail gear list on 03/28/2006 00:29:11 MST Print View

I am planning on hiking the Tahoe Rim Trail this august and have so far have come up with this list. I have been using this kit fairly well in southern Idaho and Northern Utah. I’m looking for a couple of ways to improve/lighten this kit. The pack and the sleeping bag are 2 of the items that I’m really reluctant to change because I like them so much.

I can't poke any holes in your list, other than agreeing that the pack's "overkill" for the gear weight but if it's comfortable, so what?

Tahoe is a milder climate than Idaho and Utah, so you're probably good to go if this kit works for you there. Tahoe in August is typically dry and mild (famous last words ;-)
