Today I assembled all the gear I’m proposing to take and the food for the first leg. Laid out on the floor, you wonder whether it will all fit in. Laid out, it looks an awful lot.
However, it all goes inside relatively easily. The weight with three days food is 12.75kg. There are still some small odds and ends to add, but I think that’s reasonable, given I’m carrying some warmer gear and the Scarp.
I’m not going to give you a list at the moment because there might be some last minute changes. The most unusual item I’m taking is a pair of rubber gloves. This is not for potential tick operations, but because on Dartmoor my hands really suffered from the cold wind and wetting and drying. The backs of my hands were raw. Hopefully using rubber gloves when filling water bottles etc will prevent a recurrence.
