On Friday I am off to Iceland for 8 days. I plan to do part or all of Laugavegur (for the second time) to capture some of the scenes I saw last time (or rather didnt see due to bad weather). From there I will probably do Fimmvorduhals. I’ve actually hurt my back a bit so it might be a bit of a struggle with the backpack, but we shall see!
Anyway the point of the post was to share my kitlist. This is everything I am bringing to Iceland and the weight breakdown for anyone who feels like doing something similar: http://www.alexnail.com/upload/files/alex_nail_kit_list.xls
There are some inclusions from my usual gear. The obvious extra is the 8 days of food. Even with high calorie food I think I still need 1kg per day so this represents a lot of weight and volume in my pack. Another extra is a Kindle because frankly I’m certain that I’ll have periods when I am tent bound on my own. I still have to decide on which books to read! I’m also taking a water pouch for the first time to save on space. I’m also packing Crocs for river crossings, which I used last time.
