1 notebook

5 Pens

Tweezers

Spare log books

Spare micro canisters

Baby wipes

Tissues

Gloves

Water free hand gel

Small first aid kit

Doggie poop bags

Doggie biscuits (as our dog is often with us )

Chewing gum/sweets

Bottle of water

GPS

Spare batteries (for GPS )

Blimey. You lot are organised!

 

I tend to go with whatever I happen to have with me at the time. I've even forgotten the GPS on one occasion.

It has been asked before. But I thought I'd put the photo I did previously back up for a laugh! Minor changes are the Palm has been replaced by a Mio P550 and Mrs B now has her own GPS. But essentially it's the same!

Combined PDA/GPS

 

Sometimes a pen, if I remember. Usually the dog but he tends to wander off so probably doesn't count.

 

That's it. :blink:

I have never really given a thought to what we take with us when we do a trip but here goes.

2 * GPS units - one for Derry and so Lynne don’t get left out - one for her. Laughs..

Rucksack

2 * full waterproofs set.

Camera - for taking pictures of location and as a muggles distraction. (We look like tourists that way - or was it idiots?)

Ordnance maps of the area downloaded onto the Colorado 300.

Drinks of squash and a hot flask of tea.

Sandwiches.

Compass.

6 * AA cells Spare batteries.

Lynne. - dare not forget the wife…

Anemometer and temperature instrument - for wind chill calculations -

Pens.

Notebook

Spare boots

Spare clothes.

Torch.

Not forgetting the walking pole (handy for searching for caches in the bush too)

 

Surprising what we take isn’t it. But then again if we are only doing a couple of cache and dashes - just Lynne and the Colorado.. Lol…

:ph34r: We must be pretty basic - all we have in our bag is; swaps, spare batteries, tissues, latex gloves(just in case) pen and a notebook which comes in handy if the log is full. And of course the trusty Garmin. :) (
