People usually ask what we brought. Earlier in the blog, I described what we planned to bring. I think that it is more important to show what we actually kept. Along the way, we bought a few things and we sent home two small boxes of stuff that we did not need. Here is the entire inventory of what I had when I stepped through the doors of the house.
|Two underwear, one pair nylon shorts, one washcloth, one ultralight dry bag. Underwear is wool for anti-stink and for easy hand washing Shorts were purchased along the way because the ones I brought didn't fit too well.|
|Hiking shoes and a lightweight sil nylon daypack that doubles as a stuff sack for my clothes. The shoes are La Sportiva Synthesis GTX|
|Glasses, eyeshades, 2-hole european USB charger and cables and a bag of small items.|
|The "foot kit" with various foot-related items. Compeed is the european anti-blister brand.|
|Ditty bag with small LED light, safety pins, sewing kit. laundry line, iPod and extra batteries|
|Inflatable pillow, water bottle, water bag, plastic cup, spoon, Kindle, and my toilet kit. The toilet kit is a little bit light right now, but it would usually have had a few small bars of soap in it.|
|Three socks, and my lightweight city shoes. The top socks were found in a hotel room and were very thin. The formerly white socks are smartwool and lightweight and the grey socks to the left are nice thick hiking socks.|
|Yellow puff jacket, red wool t-shirt, grey windbreaker and my cotton "howdy pilgrim" t-shirt. I wore the cotton t-shirt mostly in the evenings after hiking.|
The cat was not in the backpack.
|Rain stuff - green pack cover that came with the pack, black rain hat, red poncho. Also, a green baseball cap.|
