I have been slowly refining my gear over the years and continued to do so as I led up to my Three Points of the Compass Walk that commenced April 2018. Walking north as spring advanced madein the same direction, I expected just about any form of weather so I already knew that I would likely be taking more than I may require.
Linked here are a handful of my more recent gear lists if you are interested. My Three Points ‘Big Walk’ lists for 2018 reflect slight changes made on trail. A couple of items were sent home because I decided I didn’t need them as either they weren’t ‘pulling their weight’, or cold weather items were no longer required due to the weather having warmed up. I also swapped out to two better dry bags at Fort William as the weather had deteriorated dramatically in Scotland. Some of the base weights below make me cringe now, but I’m getting better!
