Ok, so as I am hiking this beast of a trail, apparently I need to get on board with continuous discussions about Gear. I have loved and hated my gear research in equal measures. I have faced a lot of challenges being in the UK vs the USA as ultra light is still trying to make its way into the market here and is considerably more expensive to pay in £s. Lots of things I will simply have to wait until I arrive to purchase which puts me at a distinct disadvantage, one of the things being the bloody guidebook! (come on AWOL, start shipping to the UK please!)
Several companies, after hearing about my trip were very quick to offer store discount, which was amazing. Thank you so much Mountain Warehouse and Cotswold Outdoors!
So here is my gear chart, its very much a working document, I’m pretty proud of it, or more that I conquered Excel!
