I admit it I am addicted to electronics. These are my excuses
Head torch – essential on anyone’s packing list, phew I don’t need an excuse.
GPS – the whole trail is basically only mapped electronically so this is main source of navigation, but with GPS comes spare batteries as it would be a critical error to lose navigation.
Steripen – water purification basically essential
Now we are getting into dodgier territory:
Tablet– For emergency calls, emergency GPS maps, photos, videos, telling the time… and the real reason – podcasts to get me up the climbs. I consider books essential, but don’t want to carry the weight so this is actually a weight saver….. no really
Solar charger – well I have to stay connected and powered up right!
