We ate everything except a handful of dried cherries. In retrospect, I should have brought more sesame snaps, more dried mango, and some treats (such as marshmallows or chocolate). Maybe some more chocolate chip Z-bars, as well.

Maybe I'm spoiled with my car camping sleeping pad, but I'm thinking my backpacking one is too narrow. I'll have to look into getting a different one.

I brought way too much fuel. One full canister would have been enough. I wasn't sure since this was our first time using the Reactor stove on a backpacking trip. It performed well, and the overall setup was much lighter than the stove and separate pots I used to bring.
