First Backpacking Trip Gear List

Hi there! thanks for taking time to look through my list. I am currently planning my first backpacking trip, besides when I went with a self development organization called Outward Bound in Colorado. I am planning to do 7-8 days in Colorado, or the John Muir trail late July/early august. Some of the items like the double rainbow and gsi dualist are to be shared with my g/f. Any constructive criticism will be appreciated. thanks NOTE: The remainder of this post can be read by logging in. For free PBF membership click here
