Obligatory Gear Post


 

So much stuff

 
Dan
Here’s our obligatory pack blog, distribution between the two of us makes the individual pack contents look a bit wonky, I don’t use two sleeping pads and I would really like a sleeping bag. So that disclaimer aside our base pack weight is ~21lbs each, there are certainly a few luxury items such as the cards and Ereader, and our seat pads, along with items like our camp shoes that I am not sure if I will really use but we will see as we go if there are items that end up being surplus to requirement.

  1. Personally I think considering its essentials for 5 months hiking, sleeping & cooking , they are well thought out but minimal packs ! There is no way that I will manage with that little when we camp in Scotland so it’s a good job I don’t have to carry our equipment ! Stay safe and keep on hiking the trails ! x x x

Stay safe and keep on hitting the trails x x x x
