Carrying theses things allows one to do a spontanous day hike at any time
Shoes (if needed plus socks)
Walking pants (shorts in my case)
Shirt (team sunhoodie)
Empty smart bottles or similar for 2l of drinking water
Snackbag (I use loose nuts and berries – don’t do bars, they create ridiculous amounts of trash)
Shaker or other screw top jar with two portions of MagicPowerPorridge™ and spoon
Giddybag – all the small stuffs that you want to have on you when being in nature
Packliner – any large enough, high density trash bag will do
PoopKit – usually a Trowel, biodegradable wetwipes and hand sanitiser
When you feel like taking a hike, just change, fill up the water bottles and cold-soak a porridge for the first break.
But isn’t carrying all that stuff around kinda heavy?
When you go overnight, your pack is way heavier. So carrying this stuff around is no big deal. In the long term you want to be able to carry overnight gear and lots of food for many weeks at a time. All training is welcome.
