Thread: The 8 Item winter challenge

  1. #1

    The 8 Item winter challenge

    Really looking forward to the Dorset trip from 31 Dec 2013 to my Birthday 5th Jan 2014. I have decided what I will be doing. I will be doing a minimal kit outting using the idea that my bag has become damaged or in some way un-usable.
    What would i take from it?

    So here we go, if you could get someone else to carry your food and you can reasonably carry 8 Items what would you take from your 45ltr bag?

    I'd probably go with something like that, but Wool blankets can be a little chilly in mid winter

    I have an idea what im taking I just like seeing folks sharing. I had one person say a camera and another say a map and another put chocolate on the list all very interesting but not always the best ideas. Surprised no one said Axe or Saw.
