Two-day trips do not require an expedition level gear list, thus the weight in you pack is significantly reduced.  If you have gear for a day hike, you are close to having the gear you will need for your Overnight Excursion.  The trip can be arranged using traditional woodcraft camping gear or contemporary backpacking gear, you choose.  And, if in your travels to Boulder you find yourself short an item or two, we will gladly help you locate  suitable gear for the excursion.
