Looks good to me. For me I need more than 20 oz food per day doing those kinds of miles. I have to go up to 24 oz to keep from chawing on my hand.

Looks like you have all your bases covered. Planning of the OT can be tough due to the weather...been there and done most of that. :)

What are your thoughts of the Borah Stealth pack? I've been thinking of getting one. I leave in 36 hours for the Weminuche backyard. Can't wait to get to timberline again.

Borah stealth on 06/24/2013 17:29:26 MDT Print View

Well I actually have not received it yet Borah had a seamstress move so there is a delay. I am very high on the waiting list. Hopefully will get it by August.

I currently use a MH Thruway 50 which I really love. However the stealth is a pound lighter. If I get it I will give it a few shakedown trips.
If it proves out as I hope that will go on the trip.

Please share any first hand OT knowledge you may find applicable! I have only down section 1 and some day hikes.

Sent you a long PM on the OT from MM 121.7 to Pinnacle Mountain (roughly the last 100 miles).

Looks good, but what size Houdini? That seems a little light.

Your list looks good but you may think about a 1/8 pad for rock protection. The trail is well marked and a lighter compass would work. What are you using for food bag?
