[pct-l] Boring Gear Question

Damn next time I'm going to carry an anvil. Next time I get to the  
Lead Cache on the PCT I'm going to take the whole box. I can squat  
150lbs so an anvil and a box of lead is nothing.

Seriously, the lightest hatchet is the one you leave at home. If you  
need little sticks to kindle a fire, the whole trail is FULL of them  
everywhere you look. And the ones in California practically burst  
into flames if you just look at them funny.

P.S. It rained today in So Cal!
