[at-l] Buffington's thru-hike prep / Paring down clothing

OK, here's the next one...

Clothing is taking up the bulk of their packs -- a change for every season, 
it seems. Winter gear includes puffball jacket, zip-off pants and 
expedition-weight long johns; everyday gear includes lightweight long johns, 
shorts, t-shirts, capeline top, lightweight jacket, full rain gear. What is 
the MINIMAL safe clothing list you'd recommend taking TO START, given that 
they'll be sleeping in their tent, NOT jumping directly into the sleeping 
bags when hitting camp, and making stops for food prep while hiking?

Cheers, Navigator
