  • 2 pairs light hiking socks
  • 2 pairs thick hiking socks
  • 2 pairs drywear underwear
  • 1 pair merino underwear
  • Packtowel quick dry towel
  • Adventure Medical Kit #9
  • Extra 51cm x 18 cm roll of moleskin
  • Pack of pre-cut moleskin

Some of this will come out so I can wear it  and we know there are a few more thing to get but we are pretty much there. What’s left is mostly small things.  We need to put in our medicines (lots of Tylenol, blister cream and Imodium). We are waiting on our rain ponchos.  Michelle has a source who is getting those for us and will be the heaviest addition.  I have to get all the wires and chargers for the still to be backed camera, tablet and iphone.

I’m hovering around 22 lbs with a full water bladder so I think I’m still good. I hope to keep it to under 25 lbs.

Well that’s it for this post.

Buen Camino
