Gear list Journal Plan Training

Pacific Crest Trail Map

Gear and training

Yesterday I completed my first draft gear list. I will admit I know little about the gear I have picked other than what the reviews have told me. I know I am trying to cut costs and weight while making sure I am prepared for this trip. I chose a two person tent because I want a tent that will fit me and all of my gear INSIDE, plus if my sister does indeed join me we can just share a tent and cut costs.
I am looking for feedback on my list and the gear in it. i have posted my list to facebook in hopes that other hikers can tear it apart and advice me on better ways to go. after i have a second draft list I will post it to the PCT subreddit for the same purpose.

I got on the treadmill yesterday as well. Something I haven't done in a while but I came to the realization that I should be getting at least half an hour of treadmill time in a day now if I plan to be walking all day everyday for 5 months.

I have taken the 60 day habit breaking challenge to help me add in the habit of daily exorcise. I'd like to hit a goal weight well before i leave for my trip because a hiker loosing large amounts of weight on the trail is a hiker that wont be on the trail long. right now I am about 90 lbs overweight. I would like to hit at least 170 before i leave but would prefer to be more close to 145. Hopefully this journal and training log will help me to stay motivated.
