The rucksack so far weighs 8.5kg, and the main things missing are more food and a few more clothes, so hopefully it will be possible to achieve my 10kg target.
My planned schedule averages just over 20 miles for 25 days, so I need to go as lightweight as possible.
The shoes I've decided to wear are Saucony Xodus, rather than the Goretex Asics.
Items packed so far:
- 250ml gas cylinder & lighter (purchase on arrival)
- Small pan with lid & handle
- Toiletries (toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, razor, toenail clippers)
- Pen, paper & passport
- Plastic mug & plate
- Goretex Berghaus paclite, hat & gloves
- Clothes - 2 hellys, pertex jacket, socks, shorts, T-shirts, etc.
