I find hiking solo, I need to carry more with me when I know my day hike is going to be all day long; into the late evening hours. If being able to go with more than one, the stuff gets spread between everyone. Why take 5 wire saws for five people, unless opening a deforesting business. So many of us won't share info when hiking in a group. When I hike with a local senior group, they are staunchly sticking to their list of items; period!! They could care less that there are five hatchets, 8 cell phones, 6 walkie talkies, 3 pounds of batteries, and such between us all. If we are not going to seperate, Why not get an inventory and let's all move on?
NOPE! What is in my pack is personal and show up at a hike like one lady did with dishsoap to wash the dishes later on in a stream. Non biodegradable. she had a freakin' big bottle of DAWN! Too funny.
Totin' all that weight?
So, in a group, take inventory at the parking lot. Is there something that is communal? For instance, 8 rolls of TP?
The one with the most active metabo system should carry that and share? Well?
