Ta-da! Here is True Blue Gumby II.
This is the pocket assembly.
Best of all, this is Gumby I in its bags and Gumby II in its bags. Old Gumby weighed 14.9 ounces. Not bad. New Gumby weighs 8.9 ounces! Even better.
Now to get the pack packed. Here is all my gear, except the sleeping bag which is already packed, and the food. Wanted to get this posted. Have to get it all put together and weighed. That's the scary part. Remember this is for 8 days without resupply (then 9 days after that).
Edit later: Total with food and water is 39 pounds. I was hoping for 38, so I'm close. After I eat one day's food that's where it will be, and then will go down by a little over a pound a day until re-supply.
There is no other news except a few errands. 100% day of hike prep.
