[at-l] re: Pack Weight

Hi folks;

	Thanks for all the encourageing words in reply to "Thru-Hike in
Jepordy". Things usually work out for the best I think. I keep lanning
my  hike.
	Here is the tenative list of my pack contents and approx. weights of
each item. My basic pack weight comes to abt 31 pounds without food or
water. I see where I can loose a cople of pounds by replacing the
Nalgene stuff with soda bottles and perhaps dropping a jacket. Last
minuet decisions will be made at the trail head.
