Well well the gear list is a journey and not a destination. I've updated both the Lighterpack embedded link and the MS Excel spreadsheet.
Have a look at the Lighterpack link for a thru-hiking list, suitable for the Te Araroa, PCT, CDT or AT or any long-distance three-season hike.
Have a look at the MS Excel spreadsheet if you want to see the three-season, summer hiking or winter hiking options. Although, the winter-hiking list is still a work in progress! Definitely want to find some warmth solutions (that can ship to Australia) because I get cold pretty easily. I know what I want, I just can't find it in the market.
For your information, this photo happens to be on the Appalachian Trail in the White Mountains in the United States. I am NOT wearing my thru-hiking gear because I wasn't actually thru-hiking. We just happened to have a weekend spare from Boston. I also happened to be ridiculously jet-lagged after travelling from Australia to East Coast US only a couple of days before.
Looking forward to hearing any comments below or on my Facebook page.
Hike your own hike.
