Aloha everyone! I’m an avid long distance trekker who made a decision 7 years ago to go ultralight. I’m always looking for ways to shave off a few more ounces without sacrificing safety or comfort. My 3-season total pack weight is 20 pounds 4 ounces; add another 12 ounces for winter treks. Those weights do not include food and water (or snowshoes). I’d be stoked to share what I have learned and learn from others who share my enthusiasm for enjoying the wilderness without the burden of a heavy pack. Mahalo!
