Example List for Wilderness Guiding
This article is the second part of my series on Packing for an Adventure.
The following list is what I use when on a professional guiding trip. This list only reflects my personal gear. The company I work for also requires the packing of emergency equipment, communication devices, and fresh food. My total pack weight for work is between 18 and 22kg on a typical trip.
The weight provided is the ‘base weight’ which is the total weight of everything in the pack, minus worn clothing and consumables. The weight will go up with food and water. Although, that’s another long discussion.
