I am hiking the Ct this summer. Starting June 10 I will hike to Copper, where I have a week long conference, and then hit the trail again. I plan to bag all the 14er's on route, even spending a week or ten days in the Colligiate's, so I am not going as lite as I have on hikes like the JMT or Grand Canyon.I just picked up an REI Half Dome 2HC top use instead of my trusty old GoLite Hex. I figure I since I will be out almost 70 nights, the weight is worth it. I'm also wearing my heavy boots.
I am using PO drops at Twin Lakes, Buena Vista, Salida, Creede and Silverton.
