Not planning on cutting any wood. Do you usually build a fire in Sept?

Always. I absolutely love fires. Helps me relax in the evenings. And it does get chilly at night. I've currently got a 21" sven saw that weighs 13.1oz but am looking at a little buck saw that they claim weighs 3.95oz.

Also, don't forget a windicator. It's nearly a must.

Oh, yeah. I keep that in my optics harness -it may not have made the list, but its in there.

Do you use the fire for cooking in place of carrying a stove?

Also, if you are not familiar, Titanium Goat makes some ultra lightweight products at reasonable prices: http://www.titaniumgoat.com/products.html

Their cheapest Bivy sack is only 6 oz and $85. Granted, this is not a fully waterproof bivy, more of a water resistant, extra protective/warmth layer for your sleeping bag.
