My kit has now all been checked out and I’m ready for 4 days of adventure in the Lake District.
A lot of new kit is being used for the first time, so I’m a little worried whether it will all work well.
The pack weight is amongst the lightest I have ever carried – 14.1Kg, which for a 4 day walk is unheard of for me! It seems my weight saving measures have been very effective.
I’m hoping the new rucksack will be comfortable, though I am already liking its new features, like the hip belt pockets for stowing ready to eat food!
Also, for a first, I will be using a gas stove. Theoretically I should be able to get by on one gas canister, but having never used it before, I don’t want to get caught short, so I’m bringing a spare for in case.
I should be back late Tuesday! Have a good weekend folks!
