That is one way. Do not forget that that is BASE weight.
Food, fuel, water (other consumables: bug dope, AM drops, etc) usually represent 1/2 to 2/3 of my PACK weight. By those figures, I could carry up towards 45# of PACK weight. Really not a bad number for a two week trip.
Did you all miss the distinction? BASE vs PACK weights, that is.
Tent/tarp (1#), Sleeping bag(1#13), pack(9oz), cooking gear(31oz, pad(10oz), clothing (long johns(14-18oz), socks(8oz), jacket(12oz), raingear6(oz) and dittybag(1#) come up to about 9-11 pounds.
