It took around 5 hours to organise but I have sorted and ‘stuff sacked’ everything I am taking with me and it all compresses down to this.
Just as a reminder that was from this:
Just awaiting a helmet and some new insulated water bottle parkas to be delivered tomorrow (which may not arrive on time) and I will then get everything into the two duffels. I don’t think I will have too much of a problem although weight is another issue which I will deal with when it comes time to fly to Lukla. Might buy a more stuff sacks tomorrow to replace two cheap and nasty versions I have and to help secure the electronics and vision items.
The list of medication required is quite large as we need to be covered for a range of possible illnesses.I have been told before to pop out all pills to save weight but I think by the time they are sorted into ziplock bags, the weight is about the same. I kind of wish I kept them in their foil packaging as on previous expeditions some pills had ‘melted’ into each other when sharing ziplock bags, especially if a little water gets in. Oh well, it’s done now.
Final equipment post will be done tomorrow night, my last night at home!
