Question First Timer PCT Thru Hiker Gear List

Practical Backpacking Universe,

I am thru-hiking the PCT with a friend this season. We are splitting up the weight of the stove and shelter. I would love any weight saving ideas. Do i have enough clothing? With this weight, are trail running shoes appropriate? Will I be able to resupply my fuel easily? Am I forgetting anything essential>?

Granite Gear Vapor Trail 3600 37
