Here is a pdf of slides and notes from my ultralight backpacking workshop given to MITOC on April 30, 2015. The notes are by no means comprehensive (or grammatically correct), but should provide a start point for people looking to reduce their pack weight. I strongly suggest that anyone interested take advantage of the enormous number of blogs, forums, websites, and cottage industry gear makers devoted to this amazing activity. If I have time later this year, I will update my notes and the information here.
See you at the summit,
