Be patient, this will take forever
I’ve been experimenting with ultralight and minimalist backpacking since the 80’s preferring my travels to be about the experience rather than the gear. The easiest way to par your load is to simply leave more at home.
Still dialing my load in but I expect this will be an on going thing.
