It varies with the trip, but these days I am most often between 10 and 15 pounds for that gear assuming camping and cooking. I can get into the 0-10 range, but that isn't the norm. Once I am below 15 the motivation to reduce the load becomes less, so while I could go lighter I don't tend to bother trimming that last bit. At that point I kind of get to the "good enough is good enough" level.

I started out carrying over 50 at the beginning of my first tour (Trans America), but sent stuff home numerous times during the trip. Since then for the most part each trip I have gone lighter and lighter.
