My original plan was to hike up 6 mountains in Vermont in 5 days, so I packed my backpack for the adventure.

Now my backpack weighed 47 pounds.

When I put my backpack in the passenger seat of my truck, it took up most of the space. When I closed my LEKI Carbonlite trekking poles, they were small and fit on the floor of my truck with no problem.

The weight of my pack took a little while to get use to. The Carbonlites helped keep my balance, plus they are so light that it almost feels like I'm not using poles.

So after I climbed up 4 summits in 2 days, I was pretty beat and I headed home.
