Here is my “kit” of gear. The “big three” (most weight) are my tent, sleeping bag and backpack. Overall everthing weighs without consumables (food and water) about 15 1/2 lbs, which is quite good.

Labeled Hiking Equipment

At the start I’ll be carrying four days of food, which is way too much for the first 60 miles, but I’m being conservative. Also I probably won’t eat that much, because hiker hunger will not have set in yet.

From left to right, day 1, day 2, day 3 and day 4; from bottom to top breakfast, snack, lunch, snack and dinner.

  1. Don’t forget the awesome pillow case you made (which I am so impressed about). I now get emails every time you post, this is awesome! Safe travels.

  2. Thanks, I got it inside of the stuff sack labeled “Down jacket…” and just checked to make sure it’s there. That whole stuff sack is soft and is my pillow.

  3. Have a wonderful walk Tartan. I wish I had your organizational abilities, would make my own longer walks so much easier!!!

  4. I don’t think having my idiosyncrasies is anything anyone should be saddled with – ha!

  5. Thanks Linda. I’ve got to find the time to post something now that I’m on the trail

  6. Remember your ergonomic instructions on using the walking sticks. No carpal tunnel this time. Take care! Good luck! We hope to see you when passing thru!
