The older I become the more I look to reduce the weight of the gear I carry to camp; the distance can vary between about a mile to up to about five miles on a trail. My intent is to enjoy the time at the camp rather than the time on the trail.

The campsites I prefer are those that allow for the most privacy so I can experience an "almost wilderness" outing in the densely populated region where I live.

Gotcha @Happy Joe! I mix it up by taking my 2001 Honda CR-V to Pennsylvania's forest roads for dispersed camping. I'm a little envious of those who live in Colorado (have the best of both worlds, primitive camping and overlanding). My knees are good, but the hip joints become painful every so often (depending on pack weight or pace).

I always bring the Big Agnes McKinnis as a liner, plus it helps to use as the main sleeping bag on warm nights with warm mornings (see CR-V interior photo) when the Hyke & Byke bag is overkill.

You're correct about the sleeping bag ratings, but since I've recently discovered the difference between a "cold sleeper" (me) and "warm sleeper" (wife) the gear preparation is dialed in better (not perfect yet).

Yep @Happy Joe, it's a Sven-Saw, but a friend purchased the Agawa Canyon Backpacking Saw. The Sven-Saw cuts through the "forearm size" branches with ease but the BOREAL saws work better with cutting the "thigh size" branches ("size" is solely a ballpark guess).

Thank you (y)

Thanks @Happy Joe! I’ll probably purchase the larger size Sven-Saw, based on your positive experience. I attempt to keep campfires small, mostly used for boiling water for the freeze-dry meal packets or small size sausage (foods that don’t weigh much, don’t take a lot of space, and can stay edible when becoming tepid for short periods.). Large campfires are used for cold winter nights, but I’ve recently decided to limit the winter outings to once in the season. Friends who I sometimes camp with are younger and stronger, plus they seem not to mind prepping a night’s worth of wood.
