All this stuff fits in to 80 litres of Kriega soft luggage. I have 2 x 15 litre bags either side, a 30 litre on top and a 20 litre on top of that (this is the bag that I would rather have empty for when I am stripping off layers or buying food etc). I also have a ruck sack which I will keep fairly light.

My big mistake was to meet up with a couple of friends for breakfast before I left. They were also going to do a walk in the hills so I decided to join them for part of the way and turn back when I felt my back struggling. Build up gently. That was the plan. How naive am I?? My friends do not let me just stop and turn back! How many times have they got me with that one? " Come for a drink Steph. We're only having the ONE pint"! A short walk in the hills became climbing Snowdon to the snow covered summit.
