Do you want pack weight or individual gear/item weight?

If I had all my gear weighed out and on a spreadsheet, I might not enjoy my expeditions as much. I'm hoping I never find out.

 what exactly am I "improving" or "getting better at" about myself or the experience if I know the exact weights of my gear?  It's not a competition or an athletic event.  I go out to break away from everything; to clear my mind of trivial burdens.  To do greater miles?  I go as far as I want.  I don't get disappointed.  To take it easier on my body?  I listen to my body.  I stop when it is time.  I don't get disappointed.

I understand that, for some, this gram-shaving is another aspect of this pastime.  It's understood.  It's not something I personally find to be that important or of any great interest.  I too like gear, but not a lot of my perspective is concerned on weight.  It's a factor, but not of highest priority.

This shouldn't be an argument.  I just don't understand your wording of "improve" and "better".  Struck me as odd.

Yea I actually made an Excel sheet with all my gear on it, and use formulas to keep track of the weight. It works well for me.

Rick I have a pair of lekki's. I have no extra cash for another pair.LOL But yes there are lighter titaniums ones out there. But also heard UL hikers say after a long trail they wished they had a heavier pair.

Poles can be a pricey item. I sold my older Komperdells to get a pair of Lekis. Pricey at $150 but so far I really like them.

 Yeah I wish I had the extra but right now, I still have 1300 more miles to go..But when its done I can buy another lighter set over winter. This is the first trip I have ever used Trekking poles. It took my buddy Dave to talk me into practiceing with them before I left. I am glad he did. LOL  I only used poles when skiing..

Are you kidding ?

I have an extensive list that works a bit like a maze depending on,

- location

- duration

- temperature

- elevation

- mode of transport

- purpose

so not to bore the 100's that might look at this thread.  I will just post the sections that I have created for myself.  I have and do weight some items,

e.g. my shelter (2 person tent/fly/footprint/poles/stakes/guys with ground 6x8 entry tarp = 5lb14-3/4oz) but have just found a new larger BUT lighter version. 

Weights are good to record on some things, though as not to get more carried away then already done I always look for lighter and smaller then lay out all gear before packing and pack less.

My categories,

Motorcycle Tools and Specific Gear/Clothing

Clothing

Cooking

Fire

First Aid

Food

Hydration

Illumination

Miscellaneous

Navigation

Repair Kit and Tools

Safety

Shelter and Sleeping

Sun and Wind Protection

I'm experimenting with making my own wooden poles out of dowels that I get at Home Depot. Total cost per pair is running well under $10. I got tired of buying poles I just break - both carbon fiber and aluminum.

If I am driving to the trailhead, I use a single six foot long custom beech stave. It is heavy compared to trekking poles, but I absolutely love the longer length and greater versatility. It is tops for navigating creeks and steep treacherous trails, bushwhacking overgrown trails, fending off critters without worry of breaking, etc.

If I am flying to a location, like I will be this fall in Wyoming, I will bring trekking poles.

I always take a very light LED  Flashlight  SOS mode Xeccon L12 . Its weight and length is perfect to carry. Besides, it's very lovely.
