It seems like Shell and I have gone into planning overdrive in the last couple of days, getting our routes sorted, writing a list of what we need to pack and generally just getting rediculously excited.

So here’s what I’m taking for our walk…

  • Clothes (not for walking)
    • 14 pairs of pants
    • 12 pairs of socks
      • 6 dress socks
      • 6 trainer socks
    • 8 t-shirts
    • 1 pair of jeans
    • 2 pairs of shorts
    • 1 pair of swim shorts (for when we find a cool wild swimming spot)
    • 1 hoody (for snuggling)
    • 1 travel towel
    • 1 pair flip-flops
    • 1 pair trainers
  • Clothes (for walking)
    • 6 walking tops
    • 4 walking bottoms (shorts and trousers)
    • 8 pairs of walking socks
    • Walking hat
    • Waterproof jacket and waterproof trousers
    • Gaitors
    • Fleece
    • Woolly hat
    • Little gloves to keep my little hands warm on those big hills
  • Day bag
  • Walking Pole
  • Water sac
  • Head torch
  • Dry sac
  • Book
  • Flannel (for mopping sweat off my brow)
  • Sunglasses
  • Phone
  • Wallet
  • Toiletries
    • Soap
    • 2 in 1 Shampoo
    • Deodorant (a big necessity for me!)
    • Toothbrush
    • Toothpaste
    • Sunscreen
    • Cotton wool buds
    • Aftersun

That’s about it for me.  I wonder what I’ve forgotten.

To share between us we have:

  • First Aid Kit
  • Binoculars
  • Camera
  • Compass
  • Guide Book
  • Maps
  • Map Case
  • Route Cards

Michelle has just got to do her list now and we’ll be sorted.  At least we’ll be sorted to the point of needing to go and buy a few things at the shop.

Planning this is getting me so excited.  I did think that work would’ve taken a back seat by now but I am churning through stuff like there is no tommorow just in the hope that the walk will come round a bit quicker.

I can’t wait! 🙂
