Fidgit’s Gear Plan for 2018

Backpack gear has been exploded around the house for weeks. Boxes appeared on the front porch and the piles grew. We hit critical mass and time came to pare down. I did a “go live” on our Facebook account as I talked through gear that made the cut and did an airport pack-job.


I set out for our third year of walking weighing in at 203 lbs and my pedal pulse is as strong as my radial pulse. My pack, full of gear and consumables, one day of food (but no water) weighs in at 28.4 lbs.

Below is my full initial gear list:
