He said that the boys had for the most part not enjoyed a very good start in life, and the Home was run as a home, rather than an institution,​ so as to give them as normal an upbringing as possible. Mr. Green, ​who was in charge, suggested that we might take some of the boys who lacked normal contacts with the outside ​world on trips with us. He invited any club members on walks nearby to call and have a cup of tea with his wife and self. Heather Joyce said that it was better to take 2 or 3 boys on a trip than a larger number, so that they would become part of the bushwalker party instead of getting together on their own. David Bennett thought that if we encouraged them to come on walks when they were at the home they would know where to come to when they left.

-3. +"But why should I?" you ask. "I carry 30 lbs and there'​s nothing wrong with my walking."​ Very well, my friend, but have you ever had the pleasure of carrying 10 lbs less - obviously what you've never had you can never miss; try a 20 lb. pack on your next summer weekend trip and I'll guarantee you'll never hump 30 again. And then there are the heavyweight walkers who are really off the beam; struggling up a ridge on a hot day and wishing for the energy of some spritely member of the party, who seems to pace it off so effortlessly. Well, maybe they can't have all the stamina they'd like, but they sure could help themselves no end by shedding a good-sized hunk of that superfluous ballast. There is undoubtedly a critical pack weight (which varies somewhat between different people) where, with moderate walking experience, the pack seems to become an integral part of the body and makes little or no difference to the staying power. As we add avoir-dupois ​to this critical figure, so the pack begins to act as a powerful brake on the body and holds us back; now the weaker the walker, the more severely will this brake act per additional pound above the critical. It is up to the individual to determine his own critical weight and try to adjust his pack accordingly,​ if he has any desire at all to derive the maximum enjoyment from his recreation. 
-WHY DON'T YOU GO LIGHTWEIGHT?​ + 
----- Frank Rigby +Having, I hope, established a case for lightweight walking (as if one were needed) I will now prove that it is quite feasible ​to __start__ ​off on a summer'​s weekend trip (Friday night - Sunday night) with a gross weight of 20 lbs. on your back, and without any undue hardships, either. If you are more particular in selecting and preparing your gear and are prepared to accept a little more austerity in some directions, you can get this down to 15 lbs. Maybe you can reduce still further but you will start to cut in on essential equipment such as happens with the Marathon pack. You will notice that my lists provide gear for a self-contained walker, and include tents, for even if you share a tent, you will have to carry it yourself (theoretically,​ anyway) for some part of the trip. All weights have actually been determined, not guessed, and while variations in item weights do occur from one article to another, they shouldnot be large enough to upset the final figure unduly.

-Frameless rucksack 3 +You will notice that I have omitted several items, which seem to be dear to the heart of many bushwalkers e.g. slacks, windjacket, the second billy, excess toilet gear etc. They are by no means essential. On the 15 lb. list you swim without benefit of costume, dry naturally, and don't have a clean shirt or blouse to put on for coming home. If anyone can prove that any of these items are __essential__I'​ll ​be only too pleased to hear their arguments. However, I do not suggest that you have to adhere strictly to the foregoing lists to arrive at these pack weights, as they can be modified within limits to suit individual ​requirements. For instance, on the 20 lb. list, you might prefer to substitute a plastic cup or bowl for the enamel mug and use the saved 4 oz. to advantage somewhere else - that is only one of the many modifications which can be made. The main thing to watch is that when you __add__ something, don'​t ​forget ​to __subtract__ ​the same weight away from something else simultaneously. Finally a few hints: 
-Superdown sleeping bag and cover 3 8 + 
-One-man A tent of golden Japara with 12 x Alumtent   +  - Regard ounces, ​__not pounds__, as being significant. 
-pegs 1 12 +  ​- ​Steel tent pegs are unnecessary.

-Aluminium plate  +  ​- ​If you must have two billies ​to handle your food variety, then enter a food party.

-Aluminium knife, fork and spoon set  +  - Prune toilet gear and spare clothing to the bearest essential ​minimum. 
-Torch and batteries, very small size  +  ​- ​Examine food container requirements critically - this is dead weight which is only useful indirectly - include aluminium or plastic containers only when japara or polythene bags are impracticable. 
-First aid kit and "kit tin" ​ +  ​- ​Plan your food list scientifically - leave the water at home and you can still live happily on 3 or 3 1/2 lb for the weekend.

 The morning was wet. Towards Windsor it was even wetter, and by the time we were past the Colo and climbing towards Parr's Brush (now rejoicing in the new-fangled name "​Colo-Heights"​) we were running through cloud and a modified deluge. Just beyond Colo Heights there were actually residual patches of slushy snow in the ground - rather amazing as the land is well under 2000 ft.
