I've loaded up my backpack. It's a little light on stuff I don't need, such as rain gear. But I do have extra socks, my chaco sandals and an umbrella for slightly unecessary things. With my weekend's worth of food but no water in the pack, the whole thing weighs only 20 pounds. Does this make me an ultra-light backpacker?
Perhaps I have enough weight left over to bring a musical instrument. Should I attempt the strumstick or bring my flute or just a tin whistle?
