After a few months of reading up I've finally taken my 25 pound pack under 10! though it's only for Spring/Summer. For Winter/Fall I would have to add a few more clothing items that would push it back up a bit, that is until I replace my current shelter with a TT Contrail and save a pound and a half.
So, here's my first Gear List (just a short overnight) and thanks for all the advice/knowledge I've picked up thus far and for what's still left to come!
