Very good point... If yu want to save weight On your back, resupply more often!! ... Once your gear gets to a certain level, it becomes impossible to shed a pound without sacrificing comfort
Think food will be two'ish pounds a day, so if yu can cut 3 days by taking an extra resupply you just lost over 6 pounds
Same goes for water...
