Before you go OMG is he nuts? Yes i am. I want to campcraft when i can , be semi comfortable, have needed power, and complete my thru hike.
Decades prior gear loadouts weighted 50-70 lbs. Today you can get it down to 5lbs. That being said i want modern multi purpose gear that covers the 10 C to enjoy , do repairs, negate a survival situation such being lost. That sadly happens every year as they currently are looking for experienced EMT hiker.
This load out will change many times before 2020 I'm sure. I hope you will give positive ideals , comments that help to fully enjoy 7 months of walking climbing camping in the mountains of Appalachia. If i get more than 10 Questions i will do a Q & A each week so don't be shy in asking related questions.
