In a few weeks me and a mate are going to either Dartmoor, the Lake District or Scotland (we need to decide this weekend) and I would just like a bit of advice about my kit.
Usually I camp alone and never go for more than one night but we are planning a five day trip. Thing is, in the past I've always packed way too much stuff so Im trying to cut down to the bare essentials, espeically if Im going to have this pack on for more than three days.
So, here comes the dreaded list of stuff I've currently got.
Starlight IV Sleeping bag (says its +5 to -18.)
DD basic hammock
Compact knife sharpener
Gerber pen knife
Square squidgy US style water canteen
Cheapy cook set
Hobo fishing kit
Cheapy fold out hand saw
Spare socks and skiddies
A few spare T-shirts
Toothbrush, Mouth wash and baby wipes.
Chargers, torches and spare batteries in me chest rig.
I still need to get some paracord, two decent bungees, some spare thermals and some gaffa tape and cable ties. The only problem is lack of space for spare trousers and jumpers. Im pretty sure with my waterproofs it wont be a problem tho...will it?
Oh and food will probably have to go in a shoulder bag as I literally have no space left in my main pack.
I do have two big bergans Im not using but Im pretty sure I dont want to take them as I just end up filling any space. The problem is I guess the weather could go either way. Do you guys reckon this is enough equipment or should I pack a little heavier?
