Carl: I knew I forgot something on there. Definitely bringing a pair of Cap 2 bottoms. As for gloves and leg rain protection, I don't use them. My pants dry super fast and I've never had a problem after living in Colorado since 2005.
Allen: I'm leaving July 1. As for the sleeping bag, it's in the works. And in regards to the Pinnacle, I just bought it from GoLite on sale. Reason I bought a Pinnacle instead of a Jam is because when I backpack with my fiance, I carry all of the food. The longest stretch on the CT that I'll go between resupply is 7 days at the beginning.
Sucks that the 2 things I saw that I could save some weight on are the ones everyone else is seeing. And are the 2 things that are the hardest to replace.
