Oooh a kit list!

I'm close to finalising what I am going to take on my trip to the USA, recent weather has led me to consider a warmer sleeping bag.  Apart from that it's pretty final.  I'm sure a few odds and ends will sneak in to drag the weights higher!

The Odds and ends
I am also in a dilemma over the camera I am taking.  I'm very tempted to take the Panasonic GH3, mainly due to the dark skies and the opportunities that creates.

Tetris and the Bear Can

My food plan looked great on paper. So I decided to try packing my food for my first section, from Glacier Point to Reds. 7 days on the trail, with 5 full days of food. Weighs in at 3.6kgs (7.94lbs). I couldn't fit it in...

Anybody good at Tetris? 

(Yes I am repacking the Porridge oats!)
