For a ‘Warm up’ hike, and my first backpacking trip in two months, things went fairly well. I’m a lot slower, but I’m still managing to get up the hills. My only gear change, my new beanie, was nice, warm, and no itches. I’d still like to drop some pack weight, but which luxury item should go? I’m so warm at night that I think I ought to be able to manage to below freezing with my 40℉ quilt, which will save me weight and space.
Now, where to go next?
Trip Totals: 16.16 miles and 1,100 ft of elevation.
