Well this sucks.. I have been planning and longing for my coast to coast hike for about 5 months only to be bed ridden with fever and all around feelin shit when the time came around for the hike. Well, that’s just how things are sometimes. In any case I will post my actual packing list anyway.

It’s about time for my summer hiking season to start! I have a nice little 230 kilometer hike planned starting friday thru wednesday of next week. I will be meeting up with my buddies Jörgen and Jonas at Coast 2 Coast Sweden and hike with them to Varberg. I decided not to do the entire hike as I am now officially a “salary slave” and want to save some of my semester days for my other hikes. (well thats the official story anyway, the truth is that I don’t really care too much for the first part of the hike as it really flat, hard on the feet and dry). I will be taking the train down on the 13th and meet up with the crew at Svänö park. Or something like that. With this trip I don’t feel I need to plan too much as they give me all the maps and cordinates for the journey ahead of time.

You will see from my packing list that I don’t have much in the way of clothing or anything for real cold weather. I have my standard sleeping quilt which I have been down well under -5 in and I have one jacket with me. My Haglöfs LIM down jacket that weighs just 180 grams. More than this I don’t really see me needing as it should be pretty warm and dry throughout.

On top of this I will probably bring both my rainponcho and an umbrella – simply because it will be pretty hot and I like the cover and shade I get from the umbrella. If it rains, well I’ve got plenty of protection for that. Everything else here is pretty standard for me and my hiking. It’s the same setup I use for all trips pretty much year round with the exception being my sleeping mat.
