Gear List Lapland 2011

After a considerable amount of time spent playing around with gear ideas, the list for my trip from Kvikkjokk to Abisko along the Nordkalotten (or Nordkalottleden) Trail in Lapland is pretty much settled, and the good news it will all fit in the pack as will the 13 kg. of food.

There may be some last minute changes, especially if I can lay my hands on a Kupilka long handled spoon, and of course comments are always welcome.
