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.
Not to be left out, here finally after a bit of tinkering is my Gear List for the TGO.
I’ve optimistically assumed the sun will have his hat on when I set out from Strathcarron on the 9th May, so shell jacket, gaitors, gloves, hat and windshirt etc will all be in the pack. So the total base weight is really a worst case.
Most of the stuff here will be all too familiar, and as with everyone’s lists it’s very much a personal choice after many years finding out what works for me.
