My wife and I are beginning to plan a trek of the Larapinta Trail in central Australia for June/July next year. It is a 223KM trail and average temps are 0C-20C (32-68) but can can go below freezing and a bit warmer (up to 30C/86F).
This is a preliminary gear list using only what we currently have.
The worst weight offenders I see at the moment are the tent and the rain gear. I think the heavy packs will be needed if we are carrying food for ~2 weeks.
There is the possibility of food drops but I'm not sure how secure they are or if we want to use them anyway as it is a thru-hike and would require us to travel along it by car first and then back to the beginning to start walking.
We might look at replacing our neo-air regulars with shorts also.
Any help lightening our pack would be great!
