Layout

Juneau, AK - Mile ??? - Mar 13th, 2018

So, I have never done a gear layout photo. I have seen plenty of photos and videos of layouts, but have never done my own. Over the weekend, I did.
I felt the need to, as I am finally sure I have come up with a gear set that will serve me well on all future long distance hikes, especially the one coming up in August.
I have, over the past couple of years, greatly reduced my overall pack weight. I was carrying between 65 and 70 pounds while on the Pacific Crest Trail in 2015. Now, I will be down to 30 to 35 pounds, depending on how much water I have to carry, as snow levels are not that great right now in Colorado.
I look forward to sharing this hike with you, and would like to thank those that choose to sponsor this hike for Warrior Expeditions.
