Thank you all for your suggestions.
I'll look into the batteries and lighter tent stakes. I love my paper PATC maps, but they really are heavy. Sorry, but I have to have my iPhone for trail music.
I'm looking at replacing my No Sniveller with Jacks r' Better's Old Rag Mt., Rocky Mountain Sniveller, or another 4-season quilt. I'll also probably add in a vest and a wool base layer bottoms when it's really cold. Any recommendations on a winter quilt?
The mesh bag holds my 'kitchen' together, while the sil bag holds all of my food. I'm feeling really good about getting down to 3 'organizer' bags. When I finally get a Z-Packs bag with strap pockets I'll knock out one more bag.
I usually keep my map on me, but I'll consider keeping those other items on me as well. I don't think hiking on the local stretches of the AT without these items in my pocket is too much of a risk. I really like my razor blade instead of a knife. With the kind of cooking I do on the trail it's all I really need. I have a pealess whistle built into the sternum strap of my Gossamer Gear backpack. I can use an Esbit tab for a fire starter if needed. I've been thinking about adding a few aquamira tabs for a backup water purification. Also, I prefer carrying two trekking poles as well.
