Intro   [Gear]   Map   AZT Trip Index   Journal & Photos   


My gear list is close to what I took on the Mountain to Sea trail in North Carolina and the Great Colorado Loop. That makes sense considering that the MST and GCL were my last two thruhikes and the gear worked for me then. It isn't super ultra light but I've never cared to be an ultralight hiker.

This trip will involve a lot of water carrying - up to 2 gallons at times so daily pack weight will vary dramatically.
