Getting ready to walk around Oahu, Hawaii

my gear to walkthe perimeter of Oahu
So okay, I think I’m ready for this…today I made an aluminum can backpacker stove. See here to make one.. I’ve got my gear list and I have made sure it all fits in one bag. It’s a little more gear than I wanted, but I can always get rid of stuff on the way. Here is the full view of everything:

Dakine backpack
3 pairs of socks
3 pairs of boardshorts
3 t-shirts
1 pair of pants
Sarong (for use as towel, etc)
Hiking shoes
Thermarest ground pad
light sleeping bag
mess kit including knife, spoon, mini can opener
homemade tin can stove and heet for fuel
2 glow sticks
notepad and two pens
camera and extra batteries
cup (plus screen and press for coffee which fit inside the cup)
toothbrush and toothpaste
light first aid kit including sunscreen, chapstick, and some moleskin
hand crank radio/cellphone charger
trusty old nokia phone
matches and lighter

plus not pictured:
A little bit of cash and my ID
nuts and raisons
water bottle

I can set off tomorrow at 9am and update on the left sidebar of this site by cellphone. I’m trying to work out how to post pics from the phone but so far, I can’t quite get it. Now, I just have to walk 130 miles or so. No problem.

    I used to travel with a 9″ teflon pie plate – can use it for cooking, drinking, bathing et all. It cleaned easily, was lightweight and took up almost no room in my ruck.

    Not a bad tip and you can make a pie!
