Flat Mama…and Flat Papa

Choosing the amount and kind of clothing we’ll take is critical for success and comfort on the Pacific Crest Trail.  We will run into all kinds of conditions.  We can’t take everything we’d like to because of weight.  Some of these pieces we’ve had a long time.  Others are new to us.  All of them have been tested by us in one way or another.  So here are our choices:
