Gear List

The final(ish) gear list is in!  Looks like I have my pack base weight (everything but food, water and fuel) down to about 7.5 lbs, not including all the electronics I’m carrying to keep y’all updated.  That brings the base weight to just over 11 lbs.  This also assumes some gear, like my tent and rain gear will be carried on the unicycle itself.  Basically, with a three day supply of food, I should be carrying about 16 or so lbs on my back.

Gear list is below.  Total weights are listed at the bottom.  The list isn’t that pretty visually… I don’t have time to clean it up right now – sorry! :)

Gear List — 1 Comment

  1. Thanks for posting the gear list, always cool to see what folks are thinking. Looks pretty light, will be curious to see how well things work.

    As an aside, fun to see a Western Mountaineering bag. I used to work there and stuffed more than my share.
