What do you need to survive on the Pacific Crest Trail?

Turns out, not a whole lot.

“This was not a typical backpacking or camping trip—there is no real time spent in camp, per say. You’re not sitting around and roasting marshmallows and singing songs. You eat for functional purposes—not for the experience of eating. At the end of the day, all you want to do is set up camp and get to sleep so you wake up and do it all over again. So bringing books, Kindles, or other luxury/recreational items that have nothing to do with survival or with walking very clearly becomes superfluous.”


I think I have a minor Triple Aught Design addiction

Now own 2 pairs of TAD trousers. Force 10 AC to be precise, tan and grey colours. Best. Trousers. EVER! Hell, I may retire my DPM trousers.

Bought them from Hennie Haynes who I cannot praise enough. Ordered yesterday at about 3pm, arrived at about 10am this morning. They are bloody quick at processing orders and they nearly always arrive next day. Even with free shipping.

Now, if I could get them in navy blue so I can use them for work instead of the naff trousers provided.
