headed into The Range today.!
for a three day mission (primarily reconnaissance).
and thought I might share a quick run down of my kit:
BD Firstlight tent, mittens/ liners, Voile Insanes, Vertical ST’s, TLT 5 Mtn boots (stock liners ;( no tongues, two Whippets, aluminum/ steel Camp ‘pons, 57 cm Grivel Air Tech Race adze (preferred for this sort of thing over my BD Venom set of the same size), brand new BD Mission 75 ruck (trimmed ;), a Jetboil, first aid kit, Ridgerest pad, Western Mountaineering Kodiac bag, spare pair of socks, Micro Puff jacket, cheap rain shell, Minuteman trousers, silkweight bottoms, a t-shirt, a long sleeve, R1 Hoddy (live in these things), googles, knit cap, wool Buff, ball cap, sunnies, 1 standard Nalgene, 1 foldable 3 liter Nalgene, 1 Voile shovel blade (no handle, paired with the Grivel), one Louis L'Amour, a GH1 and enough food and fuel to keep me sane.
No down booties, Scotch whiskey, nor skinny skins (though long debated).
Thus, don’t expect any posts until the end of the week… Cheers!
