Pine Mtn Trail Gear List – April 2011

Ok disclaimer to start on this Gear List.  Some of the things I’ve got on here are preliminary items.  There are things I have stuck in here that we will take if the trip gets here and we have not been able to acquire the equipment we were hoping for.  Also there are a few pieces we have that some people might cringe at, such as Richard using an old external frame pack or carrying a regular camping sleeping bag.  I know that some of these things are not very good for backpacking in general let alone UL, and because of that I’ve been nervous to even share this gear list.  In response to the inadequacies of these items all I can say is, we’re doing the best we can and Richard specifically has some items from scouts that will work for him now and he would rather use these things for now and buy the ultralight gear when we can afford it and not spend more money on any in between piece.  His logic is that if we are spending money on getting a average internal pack and mummy bag on him now it’s going to take that much longer to afford the really nice frameless pack and down quilt he wants.  As frustrating as it is to not have up to date gear I can see the logic and it is his choice so I’m going with it for now.  Weights coming soon.
