Recently, I purchased a scale so I could accurately weight my gear. I was both excited and surprised. What a wake up call it was finding out how much my gear really weighed. I honestly thought I had base weight around 9 to 10 pounds… Wrong! More like 11 to 13 pound base weight. Altought a respectable weight , it’s not where I would like to be.
So what’s next?… The journey to a base weight of ten pounds or less of course. I plan on really examining my gear and making wiser choices on gear selection. Will I continue to hammock camp or go back to the ground? Will I change out my pack for a lighter model or just stay in the light weight category?
So stay tuned and be apart of my journey!
