A tent is one. The one I have part of is an REI half-dome. That’s a fairly large tent and it weighs 5.5 pounds. I would like a small one.
A footprint for the tent. Do I have one?
A stuff sack for my sleeping back and something to sleep on. Do I have anything, or do I need to buy? Where is my camping pillow?
Packs, I think. I have this day-and-a-half pack but ideally I would have a pack with a frame and a day pack.
Water bottles, utensils, things like this. Tarps, rope, knife. I have to go through my shed.
BOOTS. Anything I do not have I can buy in California, even at the last minute, but I need to work on the boot issue now.
So here go a thousand dollars, and I am not doing any more to the house this year. But I will be outfitted as a mountaineer again. And I will have my identity in that way.
