Two of us were working on processing fire wood for the evening, me with the saw and my buddy with his hatchet and I was able to process much more wood than he was in the same amount of time. I don't think you can beat a good saw for processing deadfall wood.

Impressive. Quite comprehensive. While it seems like a large pack, I think you've actually scaled it back from what it could be considering how well equipped.

I wish there was a way to make the pack more modular. I believe in scalability, but not sure how I would divide up what you've packed effectively without compromising the thoroughness.

You deserve a Bravo Zulu on this one.

It's a stumper for me, Benjamin. I've scaled back some, removing the SS cup and the Katadyn filter, for example. The three weight loss target modules are food, clothing and the shoe bag o stuff. I can lighten clothes once summer finally gets arrives and stays for it's brief visit. I could also lose the kettle kit, but the thing I like about the shoe bag of stuff, it that along with my on body stuff, water bottle and FAK, it's a ready to go day hike kit with shelter, water and fire.

My hubby just moved it from my Jeep to his truck and thinks I need to lose twenty pounds. (My pack that is. He might think I could stand to lose twenty pounds to he's a wise man and is it to himself if he does.) We haven't weighed it but he's guessing around 60 pounds. That's seems about right to me, with food and water in there. I'm taking it to camp and hiking it hard this weekend, and that will probably enlighten me a bit more.

The challenge I have is that very often I'm responsible for other people's kids when we're out there. My son and I can go pretty minimal at this point, but even though I don't expect it'll come to it, I've got to prepare to support a couple of other kids for a possible unexpected overnighter, not to mention that it's my BOB so potentially going to support my son and baby daughter too.

All my pics on photobucket crapped out. Sorry!

I took my BOB (as listed above, minus the SS cup and Katadyn water filter) for a hike this weekend, with my and his pack. We made two treks, about 2.5 miles each, and it took us about two hours each time, with water breaks and nature exploring along the way.





There are too many pics for ETS, and you might not want to be bored with the tale, so here's a link to my Zombie Squad contest entry, which gives all the details.
