I realized one of the biggest area of weight savings available to me was clothing. I replaced my down vest with a Montbell U.L. Down Vest, and my Goretex jacket with a Mountain Hardwear Typhoon jacket. I got about 7-8 years of hard use out of my existing gear, and they still have some life, but it is hard to get them to smell decent, and I will save about a pound. I hope this new gear holds up as well. I also had enough free points with Moosejaw to get a free MSR Microrocket Canister Stove to replace my MSR Superfly. I am with rlown, it is time to make the annual Pflueger order.

And they showed up today. I went out to meet the UPS guy, who then summarily threw them onto the porch. :\

Anyway:

Haven't bought new reels in over a decade. I'm kind of jazzed. Now just need some time to put spool them and put them into action. They are Pflueger Supreme 8230MG's.

Western Mountaineering Versalite I picked up on sale for $384 and traded my Hyperlite Mountain Gear Echo I tarp for a Zpacks Hexamid.

My wishlist was untouched for this season.

Six Moon Designs Gatewood Cape and Serenity Net Tent Combo
Feathered Friends Kestrel UL30
Exped SynMat UL7

I can't wait to test these items out in the field over Memorial Day weekend.

I also plan on getting a Bearikade Expedition and a Sawyer Squeeze before the end of the summer.

Remember, you can custom order your Bearikade lengthwise. (or is that height wise). pick a length. I love my can.

Yeah, I have a scout and really like it. It is perfect for 1-2 nights. I need something for week long trips. Not sure if I will get the expedition or get a custom one that is an inch or two shorter.
