You didn't say what kind of weather you will be hiking in.
I hate Dri Ducks. Two pairs and zipper problems with each after a few uses.
One of my versatile pieces of gear is a Houdini wind shirt.
Down to about a low temp of freezing I can get by with Cap 1 bottoms and hike in a merino/poly blend shirt that weighs under 6 oz, and a pair of nylon shorts. If I get cold walking, I put on the Cap 1 bottoms. I wear them to sleep in. I take a MB Ex UL Jacket or Vest. If it is too cold, I just drape my quilt over me while sitting in my shelter doing tasks before going to sleep.
There are lighter shelters, but more money to be spent.
I rarely take a camera, but I sure wish I had some pictures going back 20, 30, or 40 years ago. Take one on those super exciting special trips.
I often don't brush my teeth on short trips either.
