I was out for a wee walk the other day and for once actually took some stuff OUT of my day bag. I was astounded at the amount of kit that I have built up over the years (that particular bag I got in emmm 1986) A head torch and spare battery (one of the older style petzyls). A waterproof notepad Dachstien mitts and over mitts (removed - swear by them) A first aid kit substancial enough to keep a doc happy for a month A spare torch (removed at the moment) Full set of waterproofs Warm clothes Map and compass, obviously A whistle Some FFDs (didn't know they were there) Some high energy scran Food for the day This week I had 3 litres of water, and could have done with more. Normally I have a little less and a thermos flask. A bivi bag Spare laces Obviously ropes, rock boots and a rack and harness if needed. With all that I should either be fit or very very slow.
