Light weight gear What a laugh!!! NOT!!! on 10/01/2010 09:10:04 MDT Print View

My wife and I did a trip here in the Cascades. We ended taking off mid day because of some of our schedules. To make a long story short. It was 90 degrees and the trail was STEEP, CRAGGED and narrow, Very narrow with drop offs of 100's of feet most of the trail has cable to clip into.. So you have the picture painted. My wife decided we needed the kitchen sink because of the group that was going with us.. To the point... I bought a nice Osprey backpack and loaded it up it ended up weighing 62 LBS!!!!! It was the most misserable day I can remember :) As soon as I got back from the trip I sold everything that was over 2 pounds and not DOWN and Titanium!!! I love this site to say the least... MY Motto is PACK LESS BE MORE!!!!! I thank my God for this site :) Oh and my wife... PACKLIGHT Scott
