2 lbs of that being an optically sighted, silenced .22 Ruger, alloy upper, gun and sight weight being 1.5 lbs. but in addition to gear, I'd want 7 lbs of food and 8 lbs of water. :-) given bait and a tree stand, a 3.5" barreled, silenced .22 hg can brain deer, to 30 ft or so. With lots of cordage for fishtraps, snares, some metal traps, and covering a lot of ground, it could be done, someplace where snow, ice and cold dont interfere too much, not desert, not swamp.

I've been plenty of places/times where you burned a lot of calories and took risks to get to water, even without having enemies around. You can always pour out the water, if you don't need it.

Do you honestly believe you could find an area that contains "no hostiles"?

I wonder where he's talking about?

East TX? Parts of OK, MO or AR???

You know one time when I was at a laundry washing a sleeping bag I saw this guy that looked familiar. If it wasn't John then he's got a twin. Didn't think it was him until after I was driving home.
