I have everything in the list but the article said use a 50L pack and all that gear should weigh about 35pounds. I have 3 backpacks, a 50/55L, 60L and 70L pack. Can you really get all that gear into a 50L pack? I can't. And certainly not at 35 lbs. When all the gear on the list is packed up along with water, food, stove, fuel, pickets, rope....basically everything needed, the pack is around 50 to 55 lbs.
What am I missing? I've got to find a way to lighten the load.Thanks for any suggestions.
