Noun: "A Shave-weenie" A person that tries to cut grams from an item
that already weighs only a few grams. Has to calibrate expensive scales,
and hold their breath while monitoring wind speed to take a weight reading
on same items.

Verb: "To Shave-weenie" - the act of removing grams from gear that weighs
only a few scant grams. To remove weight from an object where the same
object does not even register on a normal hikers weight scale.

I think cost and time should be included. If someone spends an extra hundred bucks to shave less than an ounce, they should be ridiculed. Same thing if they spend an extra three hours on a DIY project for less than an ounce...unless there's also a 15 second decrease in boil time for a stove, obviously... :p

I think I will scrape the paint of my old trifold to save weight, since I'm bigdogging and bringing it (1250g) along instead of the 500g plant-shovel we had planned on :dancing2:

This is why private trail dialects are so fun. If you take something out
of context, it is entirely coincidental :biggrin: Double meanings keep
people on their toes :damnmate:
