Welcome to the BPL site and family of gear/weight obsessive fools that we are!
Tons to learn here and lots of people happy to answer questions for you.
Lord knows, people were great about answering all of my questions.
I feel your pain, I have carried as much as 90 lbs before....rediculous!
Just wish I had found this site before blowing tons of money at REI on traditional gear.
Good luck and enjoy your Lightweight Backpacking education here.
