What can I get rid of?? Or what am I missing? Last resupply is MTR, then probably 10 days to Whitney.
I am going with two other people, but I will be cooking for myself. My companions are married, so they'll cook together and whatnot; I'm on my own for meals.
hexamid solo plus with cuben bathtub floor

Montbell alpine light down parka (full zip, hood)
Capilene 2 tights (sleeping, insulation)

I'd really rather not have to buy another pack (of course, who doesn't love a good reason to buy new gear?!) but I will if I need to. I'm going to try carrying this exact set up on some weekend hikes around here over the next month, see how it carries.
Should I switch to aqua Mira?
Do I need the Houdini AND the Haglofs rain jacket? (I really don't like the dri ducks...I tried, I just can't wear it...)
Do I need a warm hat? The black rock gear hat weighs literally nothing, but if I don't need it ill leave it at home
I only seem to need a pound of food (or less) a day...I may regret that on a 20 day hike, but so far it works great up to 11 days, so we'll see....
