All packed for the PCT

Here is what I will be carrying for our first section.  This will be a six day section for us, so this includes six days worth of food along with stove fuel and water.  My total pack weight is 30.68 pounds of gear plus the weight of my actual pack  will come to 33 pounds.

By day two this should be down to 30 pounds and it will keep getting lower. By day six my total weight carried including pack and some water and maybe some left over fuel, will be about 17 pounds.

I will carrry ten pounds of food and my daughter will carry six pounds of food.  Her base pack weight is 10.5 pounds her total pack weight including pack and water will be about 18 pounds. I'm guessing that her kids circuit pack is 2 pounds, but it might be less.

All weights are in ounces
