I have been backpacking since 2000 when I attempted a thru hike of the AT. I'm addicted to gear. I manage to get out for several one to two night trips each year, and at least one week-long section hike every year. Almost all of my backpacking experience is on the Appalachian Trail with some experience day-hiking trails in and around the Los Angeles area. I don't consider myself an "ultralight" backpacker, but I'm definitely a "lightweight," as my pack for a 5-night AT journey, with low temps down to 32 degrees, will weigh approx. 5 lbs including food and 2L of water.
