Hello nice people! (Hope this is in the right place.) Just wanted to share my lightweight and budget gear list video filmed right on the AT. Started on Easter Sunday, now at mile 720 in Daleville,VA and hope to go all the way!
So far I've been very suprised that there are only a few other lightweight hikers on the trial. Those are in the low 20s. I'm the lightest that I've seen so far near 15 lbs with 4 days of food and think it could drop even more weight. Some things have changed but pretty much the same.
I also have a geargrams pg but don't have this exact set-up listed.
That link should get ya to the rest of the videos of my whole trip so far if anyone is interested in following along. Please sub and comment! I try and update it every two weeks or so.
Learned alot of tips from this forum and also hikelight Steve on YouTube.
Some of the brands I'm using are Terra Nova Laser 20, WM Summerlite, Wilderness logics underquilt and tarp, Grand Trunk Nano, Snowpeak, etc....
Later! Jeff aka Loner Greenville, SC http://www.youtube.com/user/Loner2012AT
