This list is subject to change, but is a pretty comprehensive idea of what I’m carrying on my back…also, you can clearly see I am not an ultra light backpacker, nor do I try to be. While keeping my big three (pack, tent and sleeping bag) down as much as possible I allow myself to add some items that I find comforting to have (ie. camp shoes, knife, extra layers).

I also wrote a blog about choosing my tent:  Tents
