I certainly hope that the Bora 70 is big enough, as that is what I am
taking. I guess I will get some idea as to wether or not it is starting
tomorrow as I will be doing a section hike from Spivey Gap to Hot springs.
My pack is packed and it looks as though it will hold everything, I am a bit
dissapointed in the weight however as it weighs 43lbs with my food and
water. Mind you I am taking enough food for a fuul week as I am not the
fastest hiker in the world, but I was hoping to keep it lower than this. Oh
well, maybe I will learn a few things while I am out there and be able to
reduce the weight when I do my thru-hike next year.
