Nice to hear some common sense. :M2C:

"“Stupid light”: Why light is not necessarily right, and why lighter is not necessarily better"" Andrew Skurka
I went “stupid light” by:
1. Not taking gear and supplies that were necessary given the conditions, and
2. Taking gear and supplies that were too light.

“Stupid light” decisions undermined my efficiency by compromising my comfort or safety.
Anybody can make a hike harder. The real skill comes in making the hike easier.
life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes. Andy Rooney
