Something to try in 2018
Happy New Year
so, how many people review what they took on a trip with a mind to trimming it next time or do people just take the stuff regardless next time anyway 'just in case' etc?
I always get it wrong though
Is that better?
Good practice if you're trying to lose some weight off the pack
indeed.....if only I had the gumption to remember. I am better than I used to be mind but thats not saying much
Got out for most of hangers way today. Whole thing was 8 inches under mud, loved it. I'm no fun to be around if I'm stuck indoors so good for everyone!
And yes, I'm probably not much fun outside either!
Oh, Glad you (and they) had some respite, sure yr not all grumps, all the time
Outside can help for sure
Sadly, mud doesn't constitute so much of a novelty, for some of us...
Hope you had yr tall wellies on though.
nope, inov8 212. And otter socks, nice but not even a little waterproof. Apoligys for drift
For you Dave
Only joking Enzo.
Rubber boots - as if
Thread title clearly states "stupid kit questions"
It's the only reason I joined in
My brother in law just came back from NZ hiking, his idea of hiking food is canned soup. On the plus side after a decade doing all the trails I'd love to do he's discovered camping mats. Its difficult to mock someone with so many more trails under his feet, but I manage
Tenuous link to topic, but a link all the same!
How many categories in your list? 10 overall groupings but a total of 26. Nerdy. All on paper, in a binder, labeled.
Lucy Walker, the first woman to climb the Matterhorn (1871), did so on a diet of Madeira cake and Champagne, carried on her back, wearing hooped skirts and bloomers.
Unsure if her kit list has survived.
my motto Dids
I never weigh my packs, the only list I have is old kit/weight against new kit/weight
which is roughly 2kg lighter than old kit at present.
After last trip I now weigh and list all the items I have brought back/not used including consumable
to make sure I don’t bring those items again. Last trip I brought back 400g :/
I don’t add consumable weight to my journey, but if I can re-supply
then I will carry less water/food and purchase on route.
Reminds me of the ginger rogers quote about doing everything Fred did but backwards and in high heals.
Showing the way
Taking a 'summit bunnet' is enough of a bother..
Approve the champagne part though.
I can totally see the logic of this, I might even give it a go..
But, conditions found, are so variable on every trip, that it can only really contribute to better educated guessing.
I know some folks feel a sense of achievement walking into a resupply town only on tank vapours, for instance, but that's too narrow a margin of risk imo.
Or is that the 'you pack your fears' phenomenon coming into play?
Or to quoth the ex Canadian Prime minister, I forget her name..
"In order to be thought half as good, women have to do things twice as well...
Thankfully, this isn't too hard to acheive"
Ah ..... There's my coat..
Oh, Edited to spare anyone fealing too fragile of noggin, to do it themselves... It's HEELS H. N. Y.
thread drift alert!
anyhoo, should you use a digital scales or a balance?
Or metric or Imperial dave
stand on a box.
Don't forget, Barometric pressure must be factored too...
And does 'skin out' take account of nail Polish?
He usually has to to be seen
