Some Changes

A look at the weather for the first week of my trip will tell you that it is going to be damp, with little breeze, probably misty and maybe cool. So I have begun to realise that I maybe wearing wet weather gear all day for several days. I have reconsidered my food list and added a few things such as maps to my list, the revised gear list can be found here.

Of some interest is the percentage weight of each group of items in my pack, the graphic is given below.

*Thanks to Hendrik and the Otherface for the Apple Numbers template.

The graphic provides an interesting summary of what you are carrying and demonstrates that significance of the amount of food being carried on this trip, fortunately it will reduce daily.

What does all this look like, the photo is below.

Reports and comments will appear upon my return.

    Thanks Korpijaakko, actually it ended up being about 8 days of wet weather and 12 days of temps in the low 20's. I now have a good suntan.
