I missed a few things in here but for the most part this is a list of what I'll be carrying throughout my whole hike. Some of the gear like rain jackets and pack covers will be shipped in resupply boxes later on. I still have to get a final base weight (weight without water, food, or fuel for my stove) for my pack but I'm guessing it will come in around 15-16 pounds. This isn't exactly ultralight but I think it's a good number with all the luxuries I'm carrying.
Sierra Designs Mojo 2 tent
Hiking Clothes: Nike Dri-Fit tennis shorts with the liner cut out. There are two shirts I'll be wearing. Nike Dri-Fit T-shirt and Columbia Tamiami 2 shirt.
Powermonkey Extreme panel with the explorer external battery for charging my phone camcorder and ipod along the trail.
Brooks Ravenna 4 running shoes. These are the first pair of shoes I'll be using to get through Southern California.
Granite Gear pack cover for the rainy days
Patagonia down jacket
Petzl Tikka Plus 2 headlight
Platypus Big Zip 3L water bladder
Sea to Summit eVent compression dry sacks
Panasonic camcorder. I'll also have my iphone with me for pictures if I need it.
Stickpic! This genius invention hooks on the end of a trekking pole so you can take videos without having to hold the camera.
