I agree with Previous poster. I would add that you might want to look into
using an alcohol stove. The hubba Hubba is a two man tent,. Do you really
need a two man tent?
I'm struggling to get my weight down to below 20lbs cuz i know I'll be
carrying lots of water for long stretches.
You also might want to take your pack out for a weekend to see how it feels
and wether you can jettison some of the stuff you have.
