Hi, just wanted to share some pictures and gear list from our first major group hike that we did a few years back. This was a portage in Central British Columbia, south of Houston, BC.
It involved 3 portages and 4 lakes. For this trip, which was not the first time for me but for most of the group, our gear included a rag-tag mess of equipment.
Just the tent and sleeping bags for me and my wife weighed in at an aweful 35lbs. I had an old Outbound 85ltr pack and my wife used my Eberlestock Gunslinger which was 3100cc pack. I had all the food and pots and a cast iron grill, yes it was heavy!! My pack was about 90lbs total. Hers was 60lbs. We also had a cooler with ice and a bunch of beer. Crazy Right!
The portages were relatively short 1.5km, 800m, and 2.5km. So not toooo bad. As you will se we had awesome weather, no wind and the temperature averaged 90 degrees.
Now on to the pictures: These were taken in 2009.
