BowDag, thanks for the photo of Tom Gerughty, he was a friend, knew him back in '69.

About the heavy packs, they were common back then. I have a book YOSEMITE AND KINGS CANYON TROUT by Charles McDermand. (A great read about Sierra Trout fishing in the 1930's and 40's.) In the back of the book, he gives his food and gear lists for 10 day-two week trips, and it came to about 80 lbs. Back then, they packed in heavy, bulky stuff; fresh eggs, bacon, a canned ham, a hatchet, it all added up. They were real men.
