Write Up:

A brisk 4.5 mile hike is a great way to kick off the weekend.  With eight strong hikers we did that while enjoying lively conversation.  How to reduce backpack weight was the topic for today.  I had heard cutting tags off of clothing could help.  Shirley suggested cutting your toothbrush in half. But with the majority of weight coming from the water we carry, Dan's idea could change the future of hiking and backpacking for all of us - dehydrated water! Stay tuned.  The first one to figure this one out will make a fortune.  ~Trish
