Pick up list for my backpack.
I was really strict with this planning. To have an idea about the estimated weight, I weighted every item and had a personal limit of 12 KG. In meanwhile the weight is about 17-19 KG, depending on the water bottles I carry with me sometimes. This weight is ok for me and I carry only necessary items with me:
- 1 Person Tent from Yellowstone *af*
I compared the tent from Yellowstone with the Richmond 1 *af* from Grand
Canyon. The Richmond tent is way to small to fit with a backpack inside but that
was an important criterion and the weight is 200 g more as specified.
- Bodybag with RFID-Protection *af*
To have all my important documents at one place, I dicided for this one.
- LED Flashlight *af*
For me it was important to have two angles of light. This flashlight fulfills my
- Micro fibre towel *af*
I did not know, that you can save weight at towels. This item is great, because it is
light, small and dries really fast.
- Travel clothesline *af*
Wow, this is probably my favourite item I have. You can fix it almost everywhere
and do not net any pegs. It is very feature-rich and I love such items (:
- bite-away *af*
I never thought, that it will work. But if you get a mosquito bite, this gadget will
make the itch disappear. The heat will destroy the proteins of the bite.
- Backpack by outdoorer *af*
This backpack and this one from MountainTop I have inspected and I decided for
the bigger one to have more space. What I can say is, that every item including the
tent, sleeping mat and bag fit inside the backpack 😉
- Self blowing up sleeping mat *af*
Also at this point I could find a light and compact solution. With a height of 2.5 cm
every hard floor is comfortable.
- Cover for backpack *af*
This is mandatory to protect the backpack during every flight. I used the cover a
few times already and it is still in a good condition.
- 3 Port USB-Charger *af*
I am so happy to have this item. If the socket is full of charging phones, I remove
one, put my charger into and I share one port with each other (: It was already
useful a couple of times.
- Sony DSC-HX90 *af*
I love this camera. It brings optical as well as digital zoom and I like the filters (great for people without photoshop skills).
- Bag for HX90
- Battery NPBX1 and charger for DSC-HX90 *af*
- Sony DSC-HX90 *af*
- SD-Card Reader *af*
Meanwhile I have my computer with me. This item is almost useless but in case of
fire I am prepared ^^.
- Sleeping arrangements
- Sleeping bag
A small summer sleeping bag, because a thicker one is too big and I will stay in warm regions only.
Small, light and big regardless.
- Sleeping bag
In my opinion, it is the best hammock for travelling. It is light, small and suuuper
strong. Meanwhile, I slept for many nights inside it.
- Without Words Book / Ohne Wörterbuch *af*
This book contains no words, except for the title. It is useful in situations where
the both speakers do not have one language in common.
- Book: SAS Survival Guide *af*
This book tells you everything about plants, terrain, camping, navigation, animals
and many more.
- Fire Maker *af*
Bear Grylls inspired me, that is why I need this.
- Hygiene Items
Tooth brush/pasta, cumb, shampoo, Deodorant
Loperamid, IBU, Malarone, Charcoal Tablets, Magnesium
6 T-Shirts, 10 Socks, 8 Underwear, 1 Long Jeans, 1 Short Jeans, Sportswear, 1
Rainjacket, 2 Pair of Shoes, 1 Shirt, 1 Pair of Flip-Flops
- Further Items
- 2 Locks
- Glasses / Sunglasses (I found another one while travelling :D)
- Small backpack
Yeah, that is it. For living, food/water and social contact is important additionally.
