How much should your backpack weigh?
I used to not worry about 20-25 extra pounds because I could easily handle it. Then I got sick during a hike out of a canyon and suffered from every ounce. I went online the very next day and bought the lightest gear I could afford. Don't do what I did. Plan for your worst case, not your best.
What should I do if I break a shoelace in the wilderness?
@Justin, you can find small rolls in camping stores, but it's easy enough to make your own around your pack frame or something.
