Chris at ULA overnight shipped us a new pack even though I only paid for second day shipping. Thanks Chri!
|Ahhhhhhh A much nicer load|
We will be sticking closer to the rain shadow and doing about half the mileage now. I ditched the tarp tent (3 pounds and crazy bulk), we can just tarp it at our new destination where much less rain is expected on the days we will be out. I also got rid of almost 7 pounds of food and one pair of socks. I could have gotten rid of a bit more food weight if I had a smaller containers to store Olive oil and vodka in.
Also when we were doing a 4 day trip I was expecting my monthly visitor to arrive on the last day. Well, that is not very likely to happen on a two day trip, so I was able to off load most of what I had packed for that. Yay!
I'll be PMSin'g on the trail, so maybe it's good that I could not find a smaller container to store my Vodka in. I'll be packing 4 days worth of Vodka on a 2 day trip. Hmmmmmm How is that going to work?
I guess my pack is about seven pounds lighter now, and her pack is about 3 pounds lighter. She no longer has to carry the tarp and she has less food to carry.
