Monday, 2 November 2009

Updated the blog today, spent about 4 hours weighing and listing my kit, and listing the major points on my route.
i daresay that i will change some of this as i get near to the begining of the trek but it will do for now.

Am quite pleased that my base weight is coming in at about 10.5kg. if i can shed some weight i will do as with food and water i'll be carrying about 15-16kg on the longer stages, ive not measured this out yet so its only a guess for now, but it seems a fairly sensible estimate and if correct well within my normal capacity for carrying on a long distance walk tho not in a 50 litre pack on a 1000 mile trek! will have to do some full pack walks to see how the rucksac holds out.
