After much deliberation here’s what I’m planning to take on the TGO Challenge this year.
Final base weight is 7.4 kg including all my shell gear, camera etc. I’m assuming worst case weight, so a sunny start from Lochailort wearing minimal gear. Everything else in or on the pack.
I’m certain looking at the weather that there’ll be the odd last minute change, possibly to the tent. I’m planning on taking the TarpTent Notch as it’s the one I most enjoy using and it’s a nice weight for the route I’ve planned (high level, so weight is more of an issue).
But looking at the recent weather and medium term forecasts I may end up opting for quite a few FWA’s in which case I may end up taking something with a bit more room and comfort. Possibly a Duomid & Oooknest. Let’s see what the weather brings. That would add an extra 200g or so, so still under 8kg base weight.
Other than that, I’m good to go.
N.B : Apologies for all the typos, but I don’t have the mental strength to go back and change them.
