If I were being pernickity I would ditch the hand sanitizer and wipes and headlamp, but if you're happy with them, then all power to you!


A journey of 500 miles begins with one step!

Great presentation and I walked this route from Porto in October last year after walking CF in September and would advise leaving treking poles at home. If required pick up a free staff, ditch head torch, (light on phone sufficient) down quilt is heavier than a silk liner, smart bottle surplus to requirement, simply buy refillable water bottles en-route, I would choose rain poncho over jacket. (Covers you and pack). Buff was surplus to requirement although Tilley hat was a necessity, had no need for sunglasses as hat was sufficient, no need for power bank but everything else in the list sounds great. My bag was osprey 22 litre and I found couple of carribiners very useful to attach travel pillow, anti-bug sheet and liner plus belt could be used to attach bag to side of bed post on bunk. I like your presentation, can you advise on how it was designed? 🤠
