Re: Pack weight
If the weather is good, the only thing I would need is my hammock, a sheet, and bug net, and maybe a change of socks and drawers. I could probably get down to a fanny pack without vittles.
If you figure a 2 man backpack tent is 5 lb, a fleece sleeping bag at 2 lb, what else do you really need? Even if you throw in a flashlight, socks, a little first aid kit, and a cheap sleeping pad, and weight of the pack, you should be under 15 easy.
Every day you see it on the news. Another felons life needlessly spared by inaccurate fire.
