    1. Thanks Barbara. I’m excited and nervous too. All I need to do now is to keep up with my training and stop mucking about with my pack. Makes a difference knowing others are following along.

  1. Will your knife get through security? You’ve got the weight down really well. I haven’t got to the stage where I can do a final calculation yet, but it will be heavier than yours. I found it useful last year to take some really cheap food bags (not zip lock variety) good for food and many other things. You’re being very positive re the number of painkillers you’re taking. I was popping them constantly for the first 2-3 weeks. You’re not taking a poncho? It’s a definite on my list for this year after many soakings last year. I am being given a very posh and expensive poncho to review. It is a bit heavy but hopefully worth the weight. Great list – thanks for sharing.

  2. The poncho just doesn’t appeal. I wore my over trousers every day bar one last year, which kept legs and boot tops dryish and my marmot precip is great. The amount of tablets is hopefully enough to get me to the nearest farmacia if necessary! Are you taking the posh poncho(Altus?) on your CP?
    I should have said that it was my latest packing list as there’s a steady re-arranging jobbie going on in my head constantly and some items have yoyoed in and out several times.

    1. Posh poncho has been jettisoned – too heavy and not purpose built. I have however designed a solution that I hope will work out and save weight. If it works I shall report back – I’m almost hoping for some rain now so I can test it!

  3. Hey Annie, what’s with the 2 stones in your jacket pockets?? Graham’s suggestions were 1) to make your jacket hang nicely, 2) to add some heft to your fists if you have to hit anyone or 3) to throw at wild dogs. Please say there’s a better reason!

    1. Hi Sarah. Nice try Graham. They’re to leave at Cruz de Ferro. One from Pamplona from last year and the other from the beach here. Think of me on Friday at Quilting. I’ll be huffing and puffing upwards on my first day and you lot will no doubt be chatting and eating cakes. X
