I'm starting it Aug. 15th and hopefully finishing mid September. I will replace that stupid spork, you're right, I've broken 2 of those flimsy things already. As far as "food" goes I have a pretty good selection of Backpackers Pantry, Rice, Noodles, and Trail Mix. I think 3,000 cal/day is enough, we'll see. 11 pounds for 7 days is a bit on the light side, but worst case I can go hungry a day or 2.
I probably won't see you on the trail, let me know how it goes.
