It’s always exciting to be trying out new kit. Well, this time, it seemed I had more new kit than tested. New tent, new sleeping bag, new stove and pans and new rucsack. Oh yes, and the boots were new too. Mabye you’re ahead of me here in guessing the purpose of this walk, but i’ll tell you anyway. Gear testing. I needed to test it all out and get a general feel for it before trying anything too adventurous.
Still, I think starting a walk after a hard week’s work (when bed is all I wanted) was rather adventurous, and it turned out that the evening’s stroll would be harder than anticipated.
