This post is related to my recent post of the same title. I have an overnight wild camping trip planned for later this week so thought it would be good to weigh in the extra items of kit in order to provide a baseline total weight for this kind of activity as well.
Again, I have not included food or fluids - this could be a significant variable but for the record I will probably carry: 1 litre of water & purify after its gone; instant lemon tea; 2 Wayfarer meals for the evening and oatcakes / energy bars for breakfast.
Ferg will carry one or two additional items that I have not listed but other than that the list is fully representative of what I plan to carry. Once again it is by no means optimised & a thread to which I intend to return!
