Is your pack light enough? Do you start up Rainier with 25 lbs., including overnight gear, climbing gear, food, water, fuel, rope and stove? On a 500 mile hike, does your gear weigh five to eight pounds, not including the clothing you are wearing? This evening's presentation by Paul Griffith will introduce packs, sleeping bags and tents from two pounds to under a pound, cook sets that weigh ounces, night-and-day gear like the poncho and sleeping "quilt," and matching camping techniques.
