What's that on your back?

Well, quite literally everything we need to live will be carried on our backs for the next six months. 

This will be our home for six months

It's actually pretty roomy and light.
Of course, bedding is important.
When blown up, these will be our mattresses.

Everything we need to cook
Of course, you've got to bring the kitchen sink.
A water filter, since we'll be pumping water out of streams and ponds, and first aid items.

Knife and compass

Toiletries.  No deoderant...there's no point when you only shower once a week.


(but they're really light)

   Iphone and MP3

Food (pretty important)
All wrapped up into neat little packages

Ready to hit the trail!
