I’m actually going to list (and weigh!) the kit I take for the next trip, prompted entirely by Martin’s organisational skills as seen here.
It’s a good idea to get more organised on occasion, I recently forgot my spork and gave myself some aluminium origami so I could eat my dinner, and I have in the recent past slept on a folded map having forgotten to pack a sleepmat. I do have a core of regular kit that I use as well as test stuff, so it should be easy to do in principle, as long as I don’t get distracted again by the constant reruns of Stargate SG-1 on the telly.
The weather will dictate clothing and footwear to some extent, and it’s 50/50 on the Lasercomp or the BigAgnes Bivy. I’m definitely taking the PHD Minim 300 down bag, a NeoAir sleepmat, the Haglöfs Oz and a purple Buff, but there’s some nice wee bits of newness in there. I’m using some eVent compression sacks for the sleeping bag, and maybe the tent as well, I’ve got some new Banananuun to take, and of course I might take out the Hewee too.
Yes indeed, feeding my inner geek is good.
