People who steal bikes kinda suck.
Well after 10 k of fun and games the Jones was swiped off my porch with a friends fat bike the other morning...unlikely but if you see either of them please give the person a sound beatdown.

and yes they were locked

I've spent the past few months really trimming out my gear list and made some purchases to swap out some items. I also added a lot to the list that wasn't originally there.

So, the results are before I was at 25 lbs of base weight, and that was with a lot of missing items, and not I'm at a base weight of 17.6 lbs with a complete list of every thing I can think of. I think this is about as low of a weight I can get to without either making some more serious sacrifices and/or spending a lot more money on getting a lighter tent.

I've been reading a lot about what the backpackers are doing and the new "in" thing is to "coldsoak" your food. Don't bring a stove, just bring dehydrated foods, put them in a container with some water to re-hydrate them while you hike or sleep, and eat it cold. Nothing like cold oatmeal in the morning or cold ramen for lunch. There are some sacrifices I'm willing to make, but I'm sorry, I'll stick with a hot meal from time to time.

Now if I could just drop some of my own actual weight.....

The QuadraPro by @AdventureFrog is a great little power source that balances available power with weight and size making this a great tool to keep your iPhone charged on multi-day trips provided that you keep the solar panels in direct sunlight every chance you get.
