Not ultralight because they are film/photo folks who did the JMT in 26 days. So while it took them a lot longer and with a bunch more stuff than most folks on here do they got some great video and photos.
it is on my "one day" list… did a bit of it while in Kings Canyon on a trip in HS but doing the thru hike would be pretty sweet.Jun 4, 2014 at 3:48 pm #2108918Valerie ESpectator

It's a very cute film, and they got some great shots! I think it was also quite successful at showing the camaraderie that you find on the trail (esp. in the last half hour of the film).
I couldn't believe how heavy their stuff was — one cameraman's pack was 75lbs after a resupply: yikes!!! Even the woman's pack was 50lbs. With that kind of weight, they actually weren't so slow, LOL…Jun 4, 2014 at 6:07 pm #2108947Marko BotsarisBPL Member

" With that kind of weight, they actually weren't so slow"
You could tell they were grumpy a few time though. :-)
I liked the movie and the site so much I bought the pendant.Jun 4, 2014 at 7:51 pm #2108977Jake DBPL Member
Yea.. looking at those packweights after their resupply was painful just watching. I only weigh 125 myself and don't usually carry over 25lb so carrying 50-75lb is out of the question for me. Looked like they had some impressive foot issues for a while…oww
I do appreciate their willingness to carry all of the big gear to get the quality shots and sound that they did.
Agree about the trail community.. I still keep in touch with 2 guys that I met on the Long Trail 2 years ago. It is nice to meet new friends and to share the experience with.Jun 4, 2014 at 8:45 pm #2108986Bob GrossBPL Member

For one trip, my pack weighed 47% of my body weight!
Kids, don't do this at home. This is only for trained professionals.
