Longest was 26 miles on the CKT if I remember correctly, coldest night 5F in Dolly Sods.
Wonderland Trail, 93 miles and 25,000 feet gain in 4 days and 4h in August 2013. Initial weight of the backpack must have been just under 25lb with 3 days worth of food. Perfect weather. It was awesome.
MLD Duomid, Revelation X Quilt plus Thermarest AllSeasons and just in: ULA CTD
Not trying to be too light - I still have some luxury items like camera and binoculars. But I enjoy the lighter load that enables me to go faster and further with hopefully less strain on my joints compared to traditional backpacking.
