3 day/2 night Joshua Tree gear list
Mar 23, 2019 at 5:04 pm #3585171
Going next week with a couple of forum members, they are seasoned desert travelers- I’m the token mountain guy they’re bringing along :) Three days/two nights- 60-ish miles, combination of trail and off trail. Weather looks like 60-70’s for highs, 40’s lows- little to no chance for precipitation at this point.
We have two water caches spaced out roughly a third and 2/3’s in. Water will definitely be the heaviest commodity, even with caches. I could use a lighter pack if water wasn’t an issue, but feel comfortable carrying 20+ pounds with the Aduro and frame.
Going bare bones on shelter- lightweight bivy w/ a 5×7′ sheet of polycro just in case. 40 degree quilt w/ a new to me Uberlite pad. Going to pack a couple of ounces of ccf pad to deter sharpies/pokies and use as a sitpad.
Was thinking about a lighter stove setup, but the convenience of a canister stove trumps a few ounces when putting in bigger days.
Not much for extra clothing- windshirt, windpants, spare socks & balaclava for sleep and a down jacket for insulation. Only bringing a 1.5 oz poncho for the low probability of rain.Mar 24, 2019 at 3:07 pm #3585263
Looks good to me Mike, very similar in function to what I’m carrying. I’ll try and post mine later today.Mar 24, 2019 at 3:10 pm #3585264
Wait a minute….only one custom knife? Risky. ; )Mar 24, 2019 at 3:59 pm #3585272Mar 24, 2019 at 4:17 pm #3585274

just peeked at your list- yup very similar :)
if it weren’t for the 4-5 liters, we’d be pretty svelte!Mar 25, 2019 at 4:49 pm #3585413
