Prepping for a big walk

My big walk for the year is getting closer and here’s my steadily growing pile of gear for packing.

Whenever I think of something I’ll need I throw it on the spare bed.



Tent, sleeping mat, sleeping bag, wet weather gear, thermals, tarp, ground sheet, EPIRB, GPS, maps, track notes … the list goes on and on. Water bottles, stove, fuel bottle, gloves, beanie, socks, medical kit … and I’m still to package up my meals!

Lots to remember and prep for for a solo 10 day walk in Tasmania’s south west – the Precipitous Bluff circuit. Aside from what goes into the backpack there’s also accommodation in Hobart, what to leave behind in Hobart, transport to the start of the walk and transport from the finish point.

But it should all be good. Stay tuned …
