Sorry, I meant Dr. Clelland :)
I wanted a generic UL kit, not a UberSpartan torture set!
Trekking poles -------- my knees and my shelter like them and they have become a very standard UL hiking item. Suit yourself, of course.
Ground cloth -------- I hike in mud. Lots of mud. An ounce or two of Tyvek or polycro window film is a good "investment"
Insect repellent -------- and miserable or downright unhealthy if forgotten. I should have mentioned that all liquids are to be decanted to the smallest possible container-- UL SOP.
Duct tape & Sewing kit - you got the ideaa
Cook pot ------- again, this is a generic UL backpacking list and most would cook something. You would regret not feeding me coffee in the morning. R-E-G-R-E-T, understand?
Bear bag & Line --------- the bear bag is the food bag, nothing fancy. In my case, a GoLite Landlubber stuff sack. The line is 60' of Zing it-- weighs little. In Western Washington lowland forests, ravens, rodents and $%^&* RACCOONS are more trouble than bears. Marmots are a major pain farther up the hill. I do use local rocks for tossing and local twigs for my PCT bear hang.
Briefs ------ pretty standard clothing item. Some short liners are like 80 grit sandpaper. And you can wear your pants while washing out your briefs because you didn't bring any $%^&* toilet paper!
Rain pants ---------- I AM IN THE OLYMPICS :) The Western Cascades get 100" a year too, and dewy morning brush will soak you more than the rain will. As with all these items, the lightest, highest performance option should be sought out. Note than I did not mention wind pants: if it is cold enough to need leg cover, I'm in camp or it is raining anyway, most likely both.
Potty trowel ---------- Might get be without, but my Mont Bell Ti trowel works in thin basalt soils and my concession to UL dilettantism.
Toilet paper ---------- just little and you're not cooking for me.
Hand cleaner ------- [MC:"do you mean alcohol based hand sanitizer?"] Duh! And the smallest container, as above. Good for starting fires too. I need more Everclear!
Comb --------- [MC: "I am bald...."] I turned 58 yesterday and I have a full head of thick dark hair. I hear it is because I use the right toilet paper [BIG GRIN]
