I posted last April fools about wanting to lighten my shaving kit on the trail. It was itemized and was about 2 lbs.

There where many that took it seriously lol.

I've been considering gums recently also and am stumped whether a package that offers longer lasting flavor but fewer pieces qualifies for being lighter in the long run than say a large economy package.
I myself always favor 1 large caliber piece over many smaller ones.

Two schools of thoughts on gums:

Mint flavored to cover bad breath and up your chances of an on-trail liason.

Pepper-flavored so it doubles as (extrememly close range) bear spray.

I saw my dentist yesterday, he shops at the same supermarket as I do.

Anyway, last time I deposited money into his bank account he told me that my teeth were fine but my gums had to come out.
