Understood. I now prefer the leapfrog method because I usually (bad weather and bugs are the exceptions) don't mind taking my time, taking photos as I walk and stretching my legs on the carries. Even though my Sawyer is only around 40 lbs., at this point I find it too much to single carry it with even my minimal kit. The only time a single carry is doable for me now is when I take the Hornbeck, which is not my preferred boat on large lakes. I admit to easing back as I have gotten older - more basecamp canoe trips with zero days enjoying camp and taking day trips. Similarly with my backpacking trips - shorter daily mileage and zero days with local exploration.
