Beautifully done!!

So.. I have a couple questions if you don't mind. You obviously do a lot of backpacking. I backpack a little, but small trips and usually only 2-3 days tops at this point. I'm wanting to combine my hiking and backpacking with my photography. Here's the problem... I'm old!! Maybe not chronologically (sort of), but physically, bad knees, joints and "ticker".
My last trip I tried doing was a 5 day trip. Just the essentials I needed and my camera and tripod. 41lbs.... May not seem like a lot, but it was for me. What's your pack load/weight? Would love some specifics if you don't mind. Hope it's not asking too much.

I'm usually at around 38-41 pounds if going solo for ~5 days. My weight without my camera gear is around 25 pounds (that includes food) and around 12-15 pounds of camera gear and tripod. It helps to try and get the lightest backpacking gear you can so that when you add your camera gear it helps to keep the weight down. Here is an example equipment list, it's missing a few things like stove and fuel but it gives a good idea.

https://lighterpack.co​m/r/2ukh6m (external link)

I usually start to train in January for the summer just by loading up and wearing my backpack when I walk my dog and then over time add in some hikes around my house and then gradually increase my distance/packweight/ve​rtical. I'm lucky to have a lot of options with distance and vertical near my house. It's amazing how much even a couple of pounds can make. When I go with my wife she carries the tent and stove/pot/fuel and that makes a huge difference. If I am even a little over 41 pounds I really feel it so I try and stay below that, and if I can get down to 37 lbs, that makes a huge difference.

I am getting older too and am considering switching to something like the Sony a6300 as I could save considerable weight on the camera/lenses. It would also let me use a backpack that is smaller and weighs less, so I think I could likely shave off a good 5-7+ lbs.

tldr: get in the best shape you can, get the lightest backpacking gear you can, and possibly consider lighter camera equipment.

^^ spot on...

I started checking out companies like Zpacks and Tarptent since the camera gear will weigh what it does but other things can get a lot lighter. www.backpackinglight.c​om (external link)

Thanks.... I guess I'm not doing too bad then. I usually hammock camp, my brother uses the zpack tents.. I forget the exact model but it's like a feather. I was just wondering what others do. Thanks for the information.

From British Columbia a few years ago. We ended up hiking down to the lake and camping close by before we moved a couple of hundred feet up above the lake and camped at the base of a glacier.
