Well since we are carrying everything we need for 4 days, water, clothing sleeping bag etc etc.
Weight is going to be a huge issue. So we are reviewing all our kit and will be starting to replace some of the heavy stuff with very lightweight kit. IE stainless cookware for titanium ones etc, the Same goes for other kit we have..... well as much as we can afford. But remember this is for a good cause so please dig deep and sponser us.
