  a lot of these videos are ... strange
  Posted by: rikjohnson on Nov-01-12 3:02 PM (EST)
 

One YouTube video has a guy hauling a full-sized axe!
Another claims to be ultralight but packed 2 hammocks plus his tent.

Also I find that the WAY he packs does not work for me as when I am out with Shea and Harry, they pack like the videos, we reach the campsite and they socialize for a couple hours, then they have to totally unload their boats to get their tents which they often set up in the dark or rain.

I have my tent and bag closer to the hatch or between my feet so the first thing i do is set my tent up so if it gets dark or rain, i have an escape.

I wouldn't carry half the junk he packed, BUT I'll happily carry my own junk that he'd probably laugh at.

Everyone hasd their own way and experts tend to have the top-of-the-line gear is size/weight while I have to make do with swap-meet cast-offs.
