All packed for the 3 weeks with 10 days worth of food (for me and the horses), it weighs in at 25kg.
Doesn’t sound a lot but feels it when you lift the pack bags… I will try and reduce this over the next few days as much as I can.
At the moment this includes several “luxury items”, they may or may not survive the cut!
I am loath to take out my D-SLR Camera though as this is going to be a bit of a special & scenic journey. Is this luxury or essential??
I have now recieved my emergency satellite device, which can be set up to send the odd non-urgent text message and can even post to facebook apparently, oh and it can track my progress too. I’ve got about half of it working (the emergency bit and non-urgent texting).
Guess what I will be playing with for the rest of the weekend!
So… tack cleaning next and catching up with paperwork (i.e. bills sigh!) before I head off.
Only 4 days to go… EEeek!
Camera…….essential in my book! Have a fab time and stay safe. xx
I’m really enjoying reading about your trip, hope you have an amazing adventure!
If at all possible I would take the camera!
The packing done, all sorted out, and now the time is near,
I really don’t need certain things, but which to leave right here.
Camera? Or furry slippers? Mmm! The choice is really hard, I know I won’t take either, …..leave room for wine instead!
Now wine is most definitely a luxury item! I have sneaked a luxury hip flask in Yogi’s saddle bag… Sure he won’t mind!
I’m sure he won’t!
Wow. Thank you for this blog. It is a breath of mountain fresh air as I extracate myself from a job that has become stale and heavy!
Wow – how do you pack so little for three weeks ? 🙂 I’d need a string of pack ponies with all the hardware I’d feel it necessary to take “just in case”.
I will pick up more food in the middle which is probably the bit that weighs the most. Was going to carry 10days of food but have halved that as I have to meet someone anyway to help get me over one of the dual carriageways -so they will bring a food parcel! On my third attempt at packing, I am now down to 20kgs!!! I still need to add in water though…
Camera without a doubt! Do you have details of your route and how many days travelling etc, so we can follow on a map?
Sounds amazing and such a brilliant thing to do for PFK. 🙂
