    Default Gear List - SOBO E2E beginning September 1st

    Been using this site for a few years now and finally decided to get an account and join the community.

    I'm starting a SOBO Long Trail E2E on September 1st of this year. I've done many short term backpacking trips (2-6 nights) but this will be my first foray into "long distance" hiking. As I've seen often done here, I've attached my gear list and hope to have it critiqued.

    A couple of notes about the list:
    -I will have access to a copy of the latest E2E guide, one of the people thru hiking with me has a copy, so its not included in my list
    -Not on the list are a couple old synthetic dress shirts (tip from another post on here) to hike in, well broken in hiking shoes (older waterproof Vasque ones), and my trekking poles (REI Peak UL)
    -I want to cut weight by leaving the rain pants behind, but it also seems like preparing for heavy rain this time of year is wise
    -No pillow, always use stuff sack with misc. as pillow
    -still trying to find a source for a 5'x9' sheet of Tyvek HomeWrap without buying a 100' roll from Home Depot/Lowes

    Any suggestions/comments are welcomed!

    Thanks in advance!
