Packing for the South Fork, in winter

LB was taking a nap while I did this, and in my preoccupation I forgot or said poorly more things than usual.

  • I’m bringing Swix violet and extra blue kick wax.
  • Rain gear is, as always, Haglofs Ozo anorak and BD Paclite pants,
  • Food is usual assortment of winter stuff; Ramen, Olive Oil, chocolate, chocolate with peanut butter, and coffee.
  • I’m using the Seek Outside Revolution frame, not the Evolution.
  • Pack material is the lovely new olive X42 which is now widely available.  The orange camo stuff is a 600D poly plain weave from Rockywoods which has proven to be excellent.  The plastic carabineresque buckles came with a Kuiu Ultra 1800 I bought last fall.
  • My emergency/repair stuff is the same as it was when I outlined it here.

Lastly, doing these videos helps with packing.  By the time I repacked after shooting this I had done it three times, which made all the odd sized stuff take up much less space.  It’s not a light load, but it’s not heavy either, and things ought to go well.
