Not too expensive August list. on 07/30/2012 20:26:36 MDT Print View

Been a member for some time, I think posting a gear list is a good place to start. This is for 2 day trips in places like TRT or Lake Basin area hikes. Sometimes gear like fishing supplies are included depending on trip. Also I sometimes do trail work with groups like Fatrac or Sutter Buttes Trail Stewardship were I stay the night on trail or camp sights. Thanks for looking and I really enjoy the information on this site.

Shelter-SMD wild oasis with chord and stakes-16oz.

sleeping bag-(96x48)poncho liner-16 oz. ( I have slept with just this down into the 40's. I'm a warm sleeper. I just have to think about how hot it will be the next day and that keeps me warm. Colder weather I have other choices).

Look for a little tiny scale that measures in ounces, and maybe up to 5 pounds. Its pretty fun.
