Choosing what goes in the pack can often take longer than the adventure itself. But some careful thought and planning at this stage can make for a more enjoyable trip. The base weight for this trip is around half a kilo heavier than for my 2009 Larapinta walk.
The two main categories which gained weight were my sleep system and electronics.
- Electronics - Spot tracker, for added piece of mind, checking in with family and tracking functions.
- Sleep system - Added a warmer quilt for the predicted low temps.
- Sleep system - Full length mat added, once again to increase the quality of sleep in lower temps.

Note - my brother is carrying the cooking system which weighs around 300 grams including fuel.
