This is my first extended solo trip. I've done plenty of shorter trips around MN (boundary waters, superior hiking trail), and have pretty comfortably done 20 mile days.
Looking to do the JMT in 16-17 days, beginning from Happy Isles on July 29th, with food pickups at Reds Meadow and Muir Trail Ranch.
Here's my current gear list:
Let me know if I'm missing anything, could really do without anything, or could lighten anything on the list relatively cheaply. I've checked out and tried other backpacks, but I'm most comfortable with the Exos, even though I could save weight there. I know I could save weight on the sleeping bag too, but unless I fall upon a supermegadeal, that's what I'll be going with.
Any tips, advice, suggestions, are very much appreciated. Thanks!
