Now I got my gear dialed down to what I will bring on the PCT. So this is my setup for the PCT – almost 🙂
I still need to buy water storage (I bought the Cnoc Vecto water bladder, but the first 2 I got leaked water) and water purifier – which will be the Sawyer Squeeze, and some basic water bottles. But I will get those when I get to San Diego.
Clothes I will also buy in San Diego, so the ones on the picture are just to show that I will not go commando 😉 at least I don’t think so hehe.
Bear can, and winter gear I will buy in Kennedy Meadows, or even earlier because as of now the weather is getting worse.
