Pacific Crest Trail Map


How many times do you buy light weight equipment before you really have light weight equipment?

I've gone through 3 packs, 3 pairs of boots/shoes, 2 tents, 2 sleeping bags, and lots of expensive clothing and I have yet to hike a single mile!

Is anyone else going through this? I hope I'm not the only one!

I thought a 20 pound base weight was good. (I've carried 60+ pound packs in the past!) Then someone told me otherwise. I got it down to 16 pounds and thought I was ready. Not so! Well, I'm under 12 pounds now so can we just get started?

I have no idea how I will get by waiting another three weeks!

See you at ADZPCTKO!
