He would carry the same equipment he carried way back then. Every once in awhile we have Hari Krishna monks, Self-Realization Fellowship monks,Catholic monks, Yoga people,Kook's walking,traveling,camping down highway 101 walking in traditional garb on a quest or trip and camping in traditional garb from 100's to a 1000 years ago. Getting along fine with out all the specialized creature comforts most of us carry now days.
Some time's I will be watching old western movies about native american Indians and I go to Local powwow's on their reservations read the history about them in books and most native americans carried just the clothes on their backs and satchel they slept on the ground.
Then you have the Amish,Nomadic tribes of Afghanistan, Jordan living like their ancestors a couple 100 years before their time are perfectly happy with their life style.
I think maybe way we backpack and just over doing it we have become sissified/smart in modern times compared to our ancestors. But it is the only way we can achieve our goal to hike farther and longer and faster to see everything before our vacation is over to get back to our job.
