Gear notes:
 
Cameras - I share a camera with my husband and he got it.  So I borrowed one from my son but it only had one battery and I wasn’t familiar with it.  So I took my big heavy 35 mm film camera too.
 
GPS - Not necessary, the trail is so clear, only if you want to play with it.
 
Trail Map - I liked having the National Geographic one.  It was far better than the one from the park service for $4.00.  Again the trail is so well marked you don’t need it but I like to look at what is coming and what is around me.
 
Clothes - All my T-Shirts were some variation on a high tech material.  Sock are Smartwool Trekking, no liner, very happy feet. We wore shorts the whole time, even over the pass.
 
Fuel - I would have rather had 2 - larger fuel cans but I had these so I used them.  It was more fuel than we needed but if it had been bad weather we could have used that much fuel.  I used 2 small cans and a little bit of a third.
 
We made our own meals rather than the prepackaged freeze dried.  We ate great for less.  I also had a spice bag, salt, pepper, garlic, basil, nutmeg, onion, sun dried tomato, bacon, parmesan cheese, crazy salt, oregano, and more. Each in a small snack size zip bag. Everything but the pasta just required adding boiling water and wait.  I used a 2 cup plastic measuring cup to eat out of.
