Seminar: Ultra-Light Packing
Paul C. Griffith
Is your pack light enough? Do you start up Rainier with 25 lb; including overnight gear, climbing gear, food, water, fuel, the rope, and the stove? On a 500 mile hike, does your gear weigh five to eight pounds (not counting the running shorts, T-shirt, floppy hat, and sneakers)? This evening’s talk will introduce packs, sleeping bags, and tents from two pounds to under a pound, cook sets that weigh ounces, night-and-day gear like the poncho and sleeping "quilt", and matching camping techniques.
