UL car camping

A place to chat about gear and the philosphy of ultralight. Ultralight bushwalking or backpacking focuses on carrying the lightest and simplest kit. There is still a good focus on safety and skill.
Forum rules
Ultralight Bushwalking/backpacking is about more than just gear lists. Ultralight walkers carefully consider gear based on the environment they are entering, the weather forecast, their own skill, other people in the group. Gear and systems are tested and tweaked.
If you are new to this area then welcome - Please remember that although the same ultralight philosophy can be used in all environments that the specific gear and skill required will vary greatly. It is very dangerous to assume that you can just copy someone else's gear list, but you are encouraged to ask questions, learn and start reducing the pack weight and enjoying the freedom that comes.

Common words
Base pack backpacking the mass of the backpack and the gear inside - not including consumables such as food, water and fuel
light backpacking base weight less than 9.1kg
ultralight backpacking base weight less than 4.5kg
super-ultralight backpacking base weight less than 2.3kg
extreme-ultralight backpacking base weight less than 1.4kg

Looks good. How are the caravans dealing with it? You're questioning their whole world ;)

Nomads are pretty cool, they are on a different journey.

I guess im a curiosity, I sometimes chucke on the inside when it all packs away.

May make the average camper rethink their gear which is good.

Only pulled the tarp out because I know the location, but was woken by a wombat looking for a kiss!

I confess I'd feel a tad exposed! :shock: People, rather than wombats, being the issue for me.
