So who else on here is going to be showing up near Machynlyth on the 23rd? I know some of the people on the mailing list have broken bones / other plans so a roll-call would be good.
I will be driving up on Saturday morning for anyone who needs a lift from the Cheltenham area or anywhere on the way.
I have had a test pack of my gear and apart from the food it has all been checked. Food will be purchased this week so I can check I can cram it all in the rear rack bag. I have a history of over catering on this sort of event!
Alpkit dry bag (medium, on bars) Sleeping bag, Alpkit bivvi bag, 7x4' tarp, guy ropes and tent pegs (if its really nice that will stay at home)
Frame Bag Tools, tube, pump, maps, sunglasses and snacks.
Alpkit dry bag (Large, on rack) Self inflating mat, Ti mug, micro stove and 100g gas cartridge, matches, water purifier tabs, spork, wash kit and all the food.
Camelbak Octane 8+ Spare clothes, arm and leg warmers, hat, gloves, water proofs, 2L H2o, camera, whistle, MP3 player.
Not eveything is listed as a) its boring and b) I don't want to give too much away, the devil is in the details!
I have the 4 maps and the start GR but I can't wait to get the checkpoints and start planning the route and seeing what sort of time I am looking at being out in the wilds.
