    Looking forward to reading the rest of your Epic hike. So far its great and more than accomplishment I could even think of completing myself. Night hiking makes me nervous...but night hiking in the Santas! Thats some determination!

      Beth, now you know why me and Jan were carrying large packs and walking down the road.

          Yeah those packs were as big as my dog! Was wondering where you were walking to and from at that hour....Now we know.....Can't wait to continue reading. I think its a great way to do one day at a time as that's really what happens when you are out there. Great Idea!

                  Cory writing a TR? It MUST be something big...

                  What kind of starting pack weight were you carrying?

                  I feel sorry for all the people who will be made fun of in post #11.

                    We never actually weighed our packs, but I'm guessing somewhere in the high 30s? I have most of the individual items weighed, so I'll put together and post a gear list one of these days.

                      Yeah, I think Jan looked at it the same way I did. We had things we needed to bring. We then tried to make them as light as possible with maintaining quality. The pack was going to weigh what it was going to weigh, and feel how it was going to feel. So I didn't need to know the exact weight. Probably sounds a little funny but knowing it weighed a lot or a little wasn't going to help in my mind.

                      I think our original add ups came to the low 30's and we definitely added a bunch at the end. I know I did training with a pack that weighed 41 and the pack I started with actually felt a little heavier honestly.

                      My second guess would be that my pack weighed 50 lbs and Jan's 30 but that was just to make me feel better.

                          I thought of that and was going to post a "Day Whatever" bump post at the end and then delete it the next time I made a new one.

                            Holy crap! I'd take 30 pounds in just food for a trip like that!
