Nearly Complete Gear List
Unfortunately, I purchased most of my gear before Christmas and left my wife with no real options for gifts. My stocking was stuffed with BoBo’s, bars, and refried beans. When I pulled the bars out, she quickly grabbed them from me to check for Macadamia nuts. I am allergic to Macadamia nuts and she is known to periodically poison me with them. As Christmas has been approaching, I have been especially good and she doesn’t want to poison me right now. Don’t get me wrong, everyone that knows my wife says that she is one of the nicest, kindest people in the world. The issue is all me.
The gear list below is pretty honest, my brutally honest gear list can be found on Lighter Pack.
There are a few items still being considered:
- Shoulder or fanny pack – I would love to have a few more items (food) more readily available. Even though the hip belt pockets on my pack are huge, it is not easy to get my phone with earplugs attached into them.
- Socks – I may want a third pair of socks so that I can alternate between two worn pairs. I will be carrying an even number of socks; curious? listen to this.
- Mid and Base Layers – are these too heavy? will they be warm enough?
I am concerned about the 5 pounds of carried clothing. My carried clothing includes Teva sandals, which I prefer for river crossings and mud hiking, but will probably be sent home when we flip to GA.
If the list below is not enough, learn more about my Big Three.
Merry Christmas and may the new year bring many new trails and adventures!
