Thumbs up 5lb Gear List

I have been preparing for a bp seminar that I am going to give. This has forced me to actually get my gear a little more organized and also make a spread sheet for demonstration purposes. So I thought I would share my list and also seek ways to pare it down even more. It is catered to a normal (for me) 2-4 day trip. I know right off the bat if I took a 40f homemade quilt I could drop about 8 oz (226 gram) right there, but I have not made a qulit yet, hopefully I will in the near future. Also if I did not take a camera even more so. But I wanted to keep it real hence why I have included all items like fuel bottle and food bags (empty of course, but state there volume) However the soap, deet etc, are weighed full. And even though I have never used my rain skirt it still comes along, oh sure I could take a light flimsyer trash bag for it but I like the lawn and leaf bag better. Ok enough rambling for now. will add more as the thread goes along. Thanks for looking.

***Sorry about the layout but it does not transfer very well from excell to here ****
