What have I done? I should have been weight training, not walking.
Dry weight for travel, the pack is currently 10.479 kg (23lb roughly to me)
So once I’m wearing gaiters, Tilley etc. and using my poles, it brings it down (??!!) to 10.282 kg. (22 lb roughly)
But then, of course, I’ll have water on board instead, so there’ll be little difference.
(Actually, I’ve done the sums from my kit spreadsheet. I live in hope that the spreadsheet is inaccurate…)
