I agree with Pooombah.  As a person who has been lurking and would like to thru-hike the trail upon retirement, I also would like to know what experienced thru-hikers used and did not use in their packs.  I would be most interested in hearing what items were thought to be indispensable at the outset only to be discarded later.  By the time I retire, my bones will need as much help as possible.

Jim Owen:  Keep up the marvelous discussions.  Your philosophy, outlook and experiences really add dimension and style to this list.  Thank you.
