Host Steve talks about going lighter when backpacking during his solo 3 day trip of Mt. Rainier's Wonderland Trail. Toting a total pack weight of 18 pounds, including extra food, Steve covers over 30 miles a day without sacrificing safety or basic comfort. With a tent, pack, pad, and sleeping bag weighing less than 4 pounds, he has all the necessities and comfort he needs. Includes scenes from the Goat Rocks Wilderness, when Steve and his 14 year-old daughter did a 3 day trip, each carrying everything they needed for independent lightweight hiking. Steve and Cassie are trail ambassadors for Gossamer Gear.
