A day of ULBackpacking

Let's say I get to the trailhead approximately 9 AM, put on my pack and start walking. At about 40 minutes I stop a couple of minutes to "smell the roses" and eat some snacks. This has only taken a join minutes. I would continue along the trail to the next (and last) crossing of this stream. Using my hiking stick, I check for snakes and poison ivy/oak/sumac (always. This neighbourhood is along the side of a mountain, and the 1 foot wide stream flows easily as it drops across rocks and across the trail. Previously done, I attach the lids, return the filter, bag, cup & bottle to my backpack. From my research, I know I start crossing year-all over streams after 7 miles. ) and move a bit upstream and above the trail. From my outside pack pocket, I remove my Sawyer trickle bag and an old plastic cup I use for capturing small amounts of water from shallow streams. Once the bag is full, I return to the trail. So I would drive to the trailhead as at daybreak as I can, to get an early start ULBackpacking. I pour it one cup at a time into the Sawyer bag. That gives me a nice energy boost, and I crank along another hour and a half to the win initially stream of water on the map. My 35 liter pack's total weight is 16 pounds. Here, I remove the filter from my outside band pocket, screw it onto the bottom of the bag and allow the water to flow through and into my now-empty water bottle. I'm planning on a single overnight, out-and-back hike into the northern Georgia mountains along a soundly blazed trail. I dip the water slowly from an inch-deep basin, being careful not to stir it up and make the water cloudy. While the foliage here could be wonderful, there are no views or areas to sit, so I proceed with hiking along. It is a clear, cool day today and I walk at 2. 5 to 3 mph, ascending the mountain, my normal pace. Presently, I would come to an allow on the left where I can sit and take a 30 minute break and enjoy. I check the map and notice I'll cross this stream again in a few yards as I zig and zag my way up the mountain along a switchback because I would degree drink water that has not been hiked through. I would be carrying my usual base weight of 9. 5 pounds, plus 2 pounds of aliment and snacks, 4 ounces of Esbit fuel and 2 liters of water at 4. 4 pounds.

  1. 3 Office Appropriate Looks To Get You Through The Summer Heat
    Something with a little more ease and breathing room is highly needed, which is why I love wide leg pants during the summer months. They don’t cling to your legs, and instead they hang loosely around them, which allows for plenty of ventilation.
