9-6.8 Total Gear Weight

*All gear has been weighed to the nearest pounds, ounces, tenth-ounces (00-00.0).  Please keep in mind that totals represent dry pack weight (food and water not included).  Food and water can add considerable weight, and that added weight will vary according to water availability and the number of days between re-supply.  Customarily, I carry no more than two liters of water (a tad under four pounds) at any given time, even across barren stretches, because I travel light and travel fast.  My food bag (plastic shopping bag), on average, contains no more than two pounds/day.  So, out of town and fully loaded for two days between re-supply, the average for this trek, my total pack weight (water to the next source, plus food) would likely come in well under 15 pounds. It should be noted that ultra-light backpacks are not designed to carry heavy loads, nor should one be trekking in lightweight trail runners when lugging a heavy pack.
