Re: [pct-l] Sharing equip. w/partner

Have to agree with Ginny about sharing gear, food, etc. with another hiker,
especially one you don't know well.  There were days during our hike in '97
when my son and I chose to hike alone on the trail, though we generally got
along just fine.    

It makes sense to share gear to save weight.  Sharing food doesn't reduce
total pack weight significantly.  If/when you decide to go your separate ways
(or have to because of injury or irreconcilable differences, as they say), you
can resupply from your drift box or priority mail.
