The Gear

I missed a few things in here but for the most part this is a list of what I'll be carrying throughout my whole hike. Some of the gear like rain jackets and pack covers will be shipped in resupply boxes later on. I still have to get a final base weight (weight without water, food, or fuel for my stove) for my pack but I'm guessing it will come in around 15-16 pounds. This isn't exactly ultralight but I think it's a good number with all the luxuries I'm carrying.

 Sierra Designs Mojo 2 tent

Granite Gear Leopard A.C. 58 

Sleeping clothes: REI polartec pants and shirt with Darn Tough wool socks.

Hiking Clothes: Nike Dri-Fit tennis shorts with the liner cut out. There are two shirts I'll be wearing. Nike Dri-Fit T-shirt and Columbia Tamiami 2 shirt.
