Too heavy!

I stuffed all my things into my backpack and put it on the scale. Without food and water my stuff weighs about 18 pounds. There are probably a few things I'm forgetting too, which means my stuff is probably 20 pounds. That's too heavy!

I'm sure Ray Jardine is one of those high-metabolism types who is toasty warm sleeping at night with just a light quilt. I'm not like that. I freeze to death in June going out for coffee at the Daily Grind. I'll probably be one of those unlucky people who gains weight hiking 20 miles a day on 2000 calories.

I'm not sure what I can possibly economize on. I guess I'll just hike slow.
