I am soon heading off for a backpacking trip to Toxaway, NC so keep your eyes peeled for pictures and hiking advise.

(as a side note: check out http://hikingphoto.com/, an amazing photo blog about hiking.)

I am going to double-check with my hiking advisor to see if I can repost some of his lists and recommendations, however at the least you will have my take on the hiking/camping trip and lots of pictures.

Soon to come…THE BACKPACK!

As a side note: I am eternally grateful that I do not have to take the sleeping bag in this photo. I was given a lighter summer bag I can use for my trip that does not weigh 30 lbs.

My gear:

  1. food

  2. clothes (socks)

  3. tent

  4. medical kit

  5. toiletries

  6. water bottles

  7. rope

  8. sleeping bag

  9. backpack

Things still to find and pack:

  1. small shovel

  2. flashlight

  3. camera and batteries
