How much does your pack weigh?

And what are you training for now? Another hike with that outing club?

For the practice hikes - generally around 25 lb. will be 5-6 lb heavier for the actual hike.

This weekend's trip will cover the western half of the Allegheny Front Trail up near State College. Two other people from the Wilmington Trail Club will be joining me. Hopefully there won't be a repeat of last year's fiasco.

See my log entries from July 15-18th of last year.

And... the fiasco has begun. Already. One of the participants, a retired woman, informed me today she was backing out because she forgot to get permission from her husband. Give me an effing break.

So only one other person? That's nuts.

Just me and one other guy (who I have never met, a retiree, sounds like he should be able to complete the hike). At one point 3 or 4 other people had expressed interest in going but they all dropped out also. I have yet to meet a true backpacker among this bunch. Seem to be mostly prima donna glorified day hikers. Irritating beyond words.
