Thanks for the kind words Ice Axe. Sorry I missed you in 09, although bink is more the talker. I had to be really focused to put out those kind of miles and didn't have time or the energy to converse with other hikers like Scott always did. However, I wanted to bring the record home for the hikers and I am happy that thru hikers have been stoked on hikers holding the record now.
Here is my gear lists:
The AZT gear list is much like my gear list for the PCT minus the umbrella the entire way and the down vest and silk weight knickers for the N. Rim Grand Canyon cold/ snow. I also had a lighter bucket back on the PCT, but have bumped up to a new one for camp chores, bathing, washing feet, laundry... I was pretty light on the PCT for the first 700. No shelter and almost froze my a** off in so cal in the june gloom with just my MLD bivy and a 45* bag. Lucky it never rained.
Binks gear list was provided by another follower at FSTPKR in the comments here:
Scroll down to James comment. He posted a link to a Flicker acct that has a scan of Binks photocopy handout deal.
Couple changes to that list though namely:
Bink builds these packs:
No hip belt on those packs. He also rocks a bug tent kit from the Jardines and a tarp from them too.
