SON Packing List for Middle Fork Snoqualmie

Newer Older

Grant Petersen from Rivendell coined the S24O, I like it, it has a pretty strict time line built in though. SON or Single Over-Nighter indicates a similar amount of time but up to 36 hours I suppose. It just happens to take a little longer to bike out of Seattle and get to some nice spots. I didn't really feel like I needed to coin another acronym I just didn't want to abuse S24O too much.

Packing Comments:
I thought I was going a little bit 'lite' since there will be other people driving later. Basically all I see missing is a stove and more food. I'm sure the stool makes up for that. June has been chilly and wet so hence the extra layers I may not need. Joeball mountain is in 2 weeks and the kits should look about the same minus some layers and the stool.

Edit:
I dicthed the camp stool , chips, swaped the thermarest for a silver sun visor, swapped the bowl for a mug and smaller spork before i left home.

    Middle fork? That's our neck of the woods!

    Arsbars, gear as packed here, only thing I ditched was the chips, since they can easily be purchased on the way an not be crushed.

    I love when you take these photos.

    Since you're missing a stove here I thought I'd mention that on a whim I picked up the GSI Pinnacle Soloist Cookset www.rei.com/product/784114 just before Ben Country 5. It has a great nesting design (stove & fuel fits inside) and I give it a big thumbs up.

    How did the Hennessy Hammock work out?

  7. joeball 47 months ago | reply

    The hammock worked even better this weekend when I remembered to bring cordage for the rain fly after I had changed the suspension. I wake up in the night wayl ess in the hammock than in a tent it seems.

    Cool, thanks. I'd definitely like to try one sometime. Seems like it's just about the lightest-weight option - and I don't often travel in the desert, so there's a good chance I could find trees.
