Clothing for a 4 Day Backpacking Trip

well, friends it’s been a while. I left you with a promise of returning last post and I just… disappeared for a while.

Writing about what to bring and what to do to prepare of backpacking just made it so real for an instant. Scared me.

Why? I can do this. It’s up to me how much it will hurt to do it ,but I can  do this.

I believe I promised  a list of clothing and personal items I will be bringing. This is my own list and not scrounged ( but not plagiarized! ) from a website.

This is for  a 4 day 3 night backing trip to Cape Chignecto in which we will be staying in cabins

Clothing

To Wear

  • 1 pair stretchy capris- with pockets  to fit my phone if possible. All the better to grab that quick photo.
  • 1 non cotton tee moisture wicking
  • 1 bra or sports bra
  • Panties
  • 1 pair wool socks
  • Hiking shoes/boots- I’m bringing trail runners. They are well broken in and laced correctly to help avoid banged toes. They are also a half size bigger than I usually wear.
  • Brimmed hat
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug/tick repellent

  • Light weight gloves
  • Light  weight beanie

  • Leggings to sleep in or for when it’s cold
  • Sleep tee
  • light (think dollar store) flip flops
  • Down jacket- I got mine cheap at Zulily last year and wore it all winter and I was never cold. It squishes up into a little bag..might make a good pillow .I’m not planning on being a fashion plate or even presentable really.But I do want to be warn, mostly dry and have an extra set of clothes in case I decide to jump in the water. It’s been known to happen.

I am past the stage of needing feminine hygiene  products, but pack what you need.

Remember, the lighter the better.
