I’m really hoping to order a zpacks backpack, sleeping bag and tent soon but it seems I so much as blink and the pound drops in value. I’m considering buying the big three when I’m in america, to save customs charges. I’d calculated my budget carefully but now everything is changing.

I have completed the main aspects of my gear list as far as technology is concerned:
- Sony a7rII Camera
- Sony Zeiss 55mm f/1.8 Lens
- Zeiss Loxia 21mm f/2.8 Lens
- Solar Paper Solar Panel
- Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire Watch
- Samsung Galaxy Note 7 Phone
- Home made carbon fibre tripod

It’s going to be a busy next few months. I will blog about camera equipment a bit because technology interests me but when I do the hike, it’s likely that I will only blog about the Pacific Crest Trail itself :).
I recently went on holiday, hiking in various places of the peak district in England. It gave me clarity, and more drive to do the Pacific Crest Trail next year.

I played around with my new tripod and ND filter too:
My Breakthrough Photography X4 6 Stop 52mm ND Filter has arrived. I haven’t tried it yet, so I can’t comment on how good it is. I’ll report back soon :).
I’ve also received a Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire watch and it’s incredibly easy to create and export GPX files with it. It seems to be the easiest and most battery efficient GPX logger for the time being.
It’s not a thing of beauty but it looks functional; it’ll probably add heat to the body unfortunately.
