Weight of backpacks:
- Sharon: 41 pounds with water
- Carryn: 37.5 pounds without water
- JoAnn: 53 pounds with water
We have fire but only because JoAnn packed fire starter and a blowtorch. She has assembled a small condo next to our tents.We are just a tad jealous and concerned that we may not be able to start a fire in the backcountry without her 53 pounds of modern fire-starting technology.
We have to pare down tomorrow. We did meet a really nice campground host who gave us some tips on backpacking. Tomorrow-after restocking the things we forgot at Wal-mart- we will be off into the backcountry of Kisatchie National Forest.
