Re: The clothes:

I will be up there for a week before my trek even starts so there is a good chance that I will drop some of them, as I am just realizing how much weight they add. We have a stove and pot set issued to us when we are up there as we are each coming kind of as a delegate from our lodge so we have never met before.

Thanks guys!

It does seem like a lot of clothes for a week hike. I'm taking less for a 10 day trek starting on June 26. The OATC trailwork before the trek will get you dirty, so maybe it's good to have a more clothes and drop the extra before the trek.

I'd take the following on the trek:
* WM Flash Jacket (9 Oz)
* Smartwool Heavy socks (5 Oz)
* Smartwool mid socks (3.5 Oz)
* Smartwool Top Base Layer (7.5 Oz)
* Patagonia Cap. 3 leg base layers (6 Oz) - Cap 2 would be sufficent
* wool Beanie (2 Oz.)
* BD Glove Liners (2 Oz.)
* prAna Pants (14 Oz)
* Extra Boxers (3 Oz)

and take one of these - whichever has long sleeves:
* Mountain Hardwear Shirt (4.5 Oz)
* REI hiking shirt (5.0 Oz)

I'm assuming you'll use the Smartwook adn Patagonia baselayers as sleep clothes.

They should provide TP and Micorpur water treatment tablets. If you haven't been with the other particpants, I would take a 2L platypus bottle for dry camps, since you won't have any idea on everyone else's water carrying capability.

Oh and your rain gear too.

hey man, have fun at philmont! ive been there twice and fell in love with backpacking. i did the regular 10 trek and came back the next summer to do the rayado program, hard to believe its been 6 years since ive been there. your gear list looks pretty stellar! just remember with all the clothes and with them getting dirty, the majority of the staffed camps will have wash boards and water bins to wash your clothes.
have a great hike!
