Your Subject thread sums UL backpacking up for me.
Forums are great and I have found people to be extremely generous with their advice and patience in asking questions.
I have carried as much as 90 lbs before and now my base weight is between 10-11.5 lbs.
Hard for me to imagine carrying a traditional load again, plus the ability to fly down the trail and pound out high mileage has allowed me to take the limited vacation time that I have and see more, do more, and enjoy more once I was freed from the load stone that was my "heavy" pack.
Congrats to you....whole new world opens up for you.
