In preparation for my thru hike I’ve put together a gear list. When I start it will be cold. So this list is what I plan to start with on day one. I’m sure what I carry will change after a month or so.

This list is a work in progress, I’ll do the math and add up all the different totals another day. It’s likely a few items will change, be added, or removed.
