Gear list

Gear list

I've begun our gear list, at least for what will likely be carried by Cisco. See the link at the bottom of the side bar. This is based on what we used on our PCT hike in 2011, with a few changes since then. Some of the zero weight items are mainly to serve as a check that we bring them. Current base pack weight, no food or water, is about 16.5 pounds, but I carry the tent and kitchen for two. We used a lighter tent on the PCT, but have a larger and heavier tent for NZ, in anticipation of lots of rain.

Best resource on lightweight backpacking is www.andrewskurka.com Get a copy of his book!

Special thanks to our favorite outfitter, and all the folks at: http://www.sunrisemountainsports.com/

*** On 5/21/2013 I added some comments post trip to the gear list.
