Pacific Crest Trail Map

A little work every day

Based on all the 'stuff' I have to figure out I am attempting to do a little something every day - whether its some reading, researching gear, reviewing maps, etc. Although my start date is approximately 5-6 months away and this seems like a lot of time to get the details hashed out, the reality is that I know it's going to go by very fast. New developments at the moment are the debate to seek out some lighter gear for the trip or get by with the items I currently have. I stumbled upon a neat company based out of Maine that makes cuban fiber packs and tents. Although the price tags are astronomical, the weight savings seem to be quite substantial. Should I get a new tent or do a little repair work on my current BD Beta Light? I think the addition of bug netting around the bottom might be a simple enough addition, and worth it. The only other gear replacement I am debating at the moment is my cooking system. Currently I use an MSR rector but would it be worth it to shave a bit more weight? Some of the ultralight canister stoves are relatively inexpensive (pocket rocket, snowpeak, etc.). Is the weight savings worth a small investment? My gut reaction is that every bit of weight I can shave should make my journey more comfortable. That's all for now. More as it develops.
