There are a few things missing from above, but they are negligible. For the missing items, I used a 20 oz bottle for fuel, two 32 oz Gatorade bottles for water and two Mont-Bell stuff (not one) food. I consider TP and wet wipes consumables, so they are not counted in base weight. The weight of the shoes is approximated, but it is close. I have weighed them before. I also carried a small Tupperware container (0.35 oz) for butter. For comments on the gear see the upcoming trip report.
