I'll second that. Good post. That last thing you want to do is make yourself look like a yummy target with a digital camo pack that could be full of MREs. I also preach packing light. You may need to move at a high rate of speed and the more weight you have to deal with, the more problems it will cause you. I know I can move over 40 miles on foot in one day with a heavy pack if the ground is relatively flat, but repeating this for a second day is a no go. I'd rather travel light, stay in fighting condition, and have the option to pick up other things that may be assets along the way, such as a good catamite. Sick, I know. Sorry, I couldn't resist.
