Good write up.

Thanks.

This thread just made me realize ill never do hard core hiking like this.

I'll second Bob's wise words and if I may, I'll add that hiking is so good for both the soul and the body that I have never had the feeling of doing anything extreme, to the contrary! The secret, if there's one, is to start with minimal mileage on easy trails, and to take time to enjoy and photograph your surroundings. The rest comes naturally.

But at the end of the day it simply comes to having the right info on "the right tool for the job," and that's in part why I started this conversation. Why spend twice or more on a product (PP photo pack) that is vastly inferior on the trail in so many ways?!

BTW, there are hard core trailsters, people like Xavier Thevenard, Killian Jornet, Jim Walmsley or François D'Haene. Here's an example of what they do on the trail, not my cup of tea, but it's pretty amazing:
