I am beginning to take this all a little too seriously. I need to step away from the pack and maps for a while. I could also do with a lesson in using my calculator.
I had a minor panic this morning when, after another practice pack (because I now have most of my food) I weighed the pack and myself and calculated 28lbs. 28lbs! Nooo!
So this afternoon I made some minor adjustments, including adding the odd, small item I’d forgotten this morning and removing a spare top, a small amount of food and decanted some foot gel into a smaller pot.
Low and behold, this afternoon my pack is weighing in at a more respectable 22lbs.
But I know I only took out a small amount and actually added one or two small items. I definitely did not remove 6lbs worth.
My maths is just as rubbish as it’s always been.
I would go and have a lie down in a darkened room, but it’s Brownies tonight. Give me strength…
