OK, so this is my first actual "let's put it all in one place and see where it stands" gear list for my PCT thru this next year.
Details (to follow proper "GL" protocol):
Starting at Campo and heading north. Hopefully very far north.
Items with an asterisk in front of them are Sierra and beyond items.
Items listed with maker (where applicable), and weight in ounces to right.
My pack is 36 ounces by itself, so obvioulsy I'm not falling into the "SUL" group. I'm ok with that. :)
I welcome any and all feedback. I've been looking forward to posting to see what the BPL community has to say/offer in advice.
