Weighing heavy on my mind…
So, here’s most of my kit laid out on a table in my (unfinished) orangerie. I’m too afraid to weigh it as I still need to add first aid, two 1 litre water bottles, a ‘folding’ toothbrush, rain coat and some more clothes.
My estimate is circa 23kg. So, 18+ miles on day one carrying this lot… It must be worth a donation in itself. 😁
List of kit I’ll be taking with me:
Rucksack (capacity: 50+10)
Water holders (x 2)
Water bottles 1 litre (x2)
Clothes – 4 x walking socks, 2 x walking trousers, 1 x waterproof over trousers, 4 x high wicking tops, 1 warm top, goretex raincoat, 4 x undercrackers, warm t shirt and trousers
Tent (Vango Banshee 200)
Roll mat (may take 2)
Pan and cup
8 hr Snap lights x7 (white)
Phone and charger holder
Disinfectant spray and wipes
Food and snacks (five days worth of ration packs and high energy food).
Shower kit and toothbrush/paste
First aid kit
And lots of spare change for chocolate from the honesty shops.
