Gear Shake Down
While I was in Waynesboro I did a gear shake down. Alison had brought some of my lighter gear and I was anxious to move to some lighter gear. This means I hopefully will have less shoulder soreness and my feet should feel better. Here is a run down of most of the gear I switched out:
Zero degree bag for a sleeping bag liner
I had this huge and heavy leatherman multi-tool that had 4 screw drivers, pliers, 2 saws, a knife, scissors, can opener and a file. And only used the scissors. So, I bought a fiscars scissors and am sending the monstrocity with Alison.
I had Alison bring me a different tarp. One that is bigger and maybe lighter.
Even my boots got traded out for trail runners. My feet will feel so much lighter!
My running socks will be lighter than my wool socks.
Even my body glide got down sized.
The fuel can I had was huge! I got it in Hot Springs and there is still fuel in it! That was over 6 weeks ago! I like exclamation points!
I am looking forward to seeing how much lighter my pack feels. 🙂
