Help Me Find the Gaps! on 05/21/2011 22:59:05 MDT Print View

Hi Everyone,

I'd love to get some reviews on my first list. I know of a couple gaps, and I'm sure I'm missing a few. Some of the things I just haven't weighed yet cause I'm being lazy. I'm not going to point them out so you can help me find any gaps I missed! Basically, I have the mentality of "If I don't have to break the bank for it, and it works, I'll take the lightest option I can get." I'm not quite into the super ultra-light deal yet, but I'll get there eventually. Right now, I'm just looking for the thumbs up on having all the necessities covered. Like I said, there are gaps, so help me figure out the ones I missed!

Thanks a lot!

P.S. No consumables currently. Also, this is a summer list mainly. Probably could take me into the shoulder seasons with some slight clothing changes.

P.S.S. I'm a hammock guy. I know I've got everything covered in terms of hammock and tarp set up, so if you don't know about the wonderful world of hammocking, don't worry. (I'd be glad to fill you in! :D)

Check, check, and check. All on my "I'll do it tomorrow" list. :) Thanks! Anything else?

Edit: Awesome. I think these are all of the gaps. Reminded me I wanted to do a bit of research on some of them. Thanks again!

Suggested GEAR LIST ETIQUETTE on 05/22/2011 12:39:51 MDT Print View

You didn't post any where or when on your list, making it pretty hard to offer any insights. Is this the Yukon or the Mojave?

I started a thread titled:

I started this thread because there are some key points that really help when you post a gear list.
