[pct-l] Re: I carry less overall weight......

I was a long-distance hiker 20 yrs. ago. I'm a weekender now, but I'm preparing to thru hike the PCT in 2001 so I think I qualify.

I read this list for two reasons: (1) trip journals (2) gear/food reports as they apply to the LONG HAUL. I appreciate everyone's input on the food issue. I'll end up "eating my own eat," but I'm getting good ideas on how to flesh out my standard Five
Faithful meals.


"PS: Is this list dominated by thruhikers? I don't know. Certainly many even
most have thruhiked and/or long-distance hiked and many more are planning to
do one or the other.....but.....what most on this list seem to ACTUALLY DO
is 50-200 mile section hikes. The question: What percentage have hiked over
200 miles in a single hike [my understanding of the ALDHA definition of a
long-distance hike]in the last three years? I don't know."
