Reminds me of my backpacking checklist list I update each year. Everything gets laid out, pic taken, and taken into photoshop where everything is numbered, categorized (first aid, cooking/fire, toiletries, etc), color coded and listed. There are 80-100 individual items that get checked every time I go. The items are put into different waterproof colored bags by category and fit into a 68L backpack and last time I weighed it was just over 26lbs. Fishing stuff adds a few lbs.
I hope you are not such a base weight Nazi that you can't make some room for a RinseKit.
Some of those PCT trail videos "what's in my 12lb pack" are hilarious. I have some premium lightweight stuff but definitely the kind who rips off sleeping bag tags and cuts their foam sleeping pad etc to save ounces (I admit my toothbrush is cut in down but only so it fits in the toiletry bag).
I usually carry fishing stuff and it adds weight. My favorite spot I go is about 8 miles in and I pack wading boots, waders and fishing gear(2 rods, reel, spare spool, hip pack with flies, etc) . It starts feeling really heavy on the way back if everything is wet, and the very last portion to the trailhead is straight uphill out of a canyon. Full on leg burner.
^^^^^ I first learned, from some rippers back in '78, that wearin' undies ain't happenin, especially under board~shortz that ya wear allll day long. Not happenin', no, no, no, no undie rash from walkin' from Rubber Duckies up to Rocky Point and then surfin' for hours upon hours at aged 16, when you'se on Thee North Shore, by yer~self, hahaha!
All thee chickz, err girlz, err, women I've dated have luved my salty ballz, since then, hahaha But they no seem to like smelly, sweaty nutz from me wearin' undie's out on thee town nor seein' any chaffing around my schlong if I had to walk 500, ya know? Nope, nope, nope...
Go to the tropics and try and wear underwear and walk a mile. You’ll ditch them, too.
I lived three years in the tropics, 8 degrees off the equator. Everyone wore underwear. But I guess if you're on a surf trip you live in trunks....
Maybe if you live there you adjust to the humidity but coming from SD, I swampass so hard. Those shorts that are made like board shorts but have pockets and look “normal” changed my life. I’m thinking of working in some capacity the tropics, not just hanging out sipping drinks after a surf.
