I'm writing this blog from my phone to see what it looks like. This is the first bit of press for my run. Not long to go now.
Due to popular demand here are the details for my entire camping setup which comes in at 1.3kg
1. Sea To Summit Nano Mosquito Net
I need this for the midges in Scotland
2. Integral Designs Tarp/Ponchp
This acts as a rain proof jacket and my shelter to sleep under
3. Cocoon Silk Sleeping Bag Liner
Nothing special about this liner and probably not the lightest. Used so I don't dirty my sleeping bag.
4. Argos Tent Groundsheet
I bought a £12 tent from Argos and cut a section of the ground sheet to fit my size
5. Argos Tent Poles
From that same £12 tent I used 4 sections from the poles which will be used to keep my tarp up
6. Argos Tent Rope
Again from the same tent I took off the tent rope to use for the tarp
7. Yeti Passion One Sleeping Bag
The worlds lightest sleeping bag. Good for summer expeditions
8. Klymit X-Lite Camping Frame
Also the worlds lightest camping frame. I used this around the world and love it
9. Camping Frame Pump
Used to pump up the camping frame for more solid sleeping base
10. Aluminium Tent Pegs
Took these from another one of my tents
I've always been interested in lightweight adventures. When I cycled around the world my entire setup, including the bike, came in at 16kg. Below is the initial list of the kit I'll be using to run the length of the UK solo and unsupported, including the clothes I am wearing. There must be a few things I have missed. Do let me know if there is!
things i might take - still deciding
what have i missed??? please comment below!
