Gear Lists...

Postby karmagurl » Mon Aug 06, 2007 3:47 pm

Love reading the gear lists you all post....leaves hope for mine someday-- that mine might actually be lighter than it is. I'm workin on it....I'm workin on it.

Finally got a digital camera!! *YAY* 6.3 oz, including batteries and 2 Gig memory card. Not real expensive, but it appears to do enough for me, for now. Sure beats the options! :lol:, for my sleeping pad.......that's next on my "list".

Keep hiking!!
