Soda bottles work well here. Though I am undecided too whether I'll take
a Nalgene or not. I may take one Nalgene and a soda bottle. 3 soda
bottles would weigh about 4 ounces.

Seems like a lot of socks. At most I would have 3 pairs all told. One
worn, two in the pack.

Why 2 long underwear shirts and 2 shorts. SHouldn't 1 of each be enough.
>Shorts Umbro (2) 5
Why 2 pairs? How do these differ from the running lights?

You'll need more than 6 tabs for 5 days. I'd budget 1.5-2 tabs per day if
you are doing one hot meal and drink. At least that's been my experience.
