Gossamer Gear LT4S trekking poles and Polycryo groundcloth- on their way! The other camera I will be using is not pictured as well. Just a Samsung P&S.
You also won’t see a stove, fuel canisters, cups, bowls, etc because I’m going stoveless! You heard that right. After seeing the fire restrictions throughout the park, I decided to ditch the stove. I don’t want the weight or unreliability of a canister (not knowing how much fuel it will use at high altitude) to affect my hike. I’m pretty excited for the food I’m bringing!
7- I have heard mixed reviews about the solarwrap. I also purchased a RavPower external battery charger as a backup. I will be testing the solarwrap more when I get to California (staying for
8 days before my hike) and will send the external battery charger home if I won’t need it.
9- Plastic bottle will be used for morning shakes
13- Ditty bag includes items such as my first aid “kit”, mini swiss army knife, bug spray, sunblock, headlamp, extra GoPro batteries, and memory cards.
27- bags: 1 for clothing not worn, 1 mesh bag for food during the day, and 1 ziplock for dirty items such as used wetwipes.
What a BV500 looks like with (almost) 8 days of food. Just need to repackage my last couple dinners. Still have some room 🙂
|Close up of the clothing (and bags)
My base weight is 11.6 pounds including the BV500! Baseweight is everything except for consumables (I only included food and water in that category) and items worn at all times. Without a bear canister I’d be looking at just over 9 pounds. Darn bears! 🙂
