Me & Hiker Dude

Pack Weight

Put my pack together today & found a base weight of almost 15 pounds. I really need to reduce weight to make the miles easier. I did manage to run my homemade LED headlamp from the battery in my solar charger. My old headlamp weighed a little over three ounces but the new headlamp is .8 oz! I will probably take a look at my rain gear next to make sure it is effective but as light as possible. Then another look at my shelter.

Still waiting for permits.

Hiked up Ash Canyon with friends & dogs today. Perfect weather and the Sierra Mountains were as beautiful as ever. Snow level was about 7,500 ft. and is a very light snowpack for this time of year. We will have problems with dry water sources this year.
