Another couple and my wife and I would like to do the socal-6-pack but we’re all relatively new to hiking. We’re all in good shape and have done some short 5-6 mile hikes before. I currently carry an REI lookout 50 pack, with internal support and waist straps. Inside I carry the following:
I also carry a pocket knife and watch on me. My question(s) is(are) (finally!) what should I ask the other people to carry? Do they each need to carry their own survival/first-aid supplies/water? This would be tough for the girls but my friend and I could manage. Also, am I missing something? I want to purchase the following eventually, but is something absolutely required before we begin?
Ive seen your great gear page where you list what you used on the JMT trail, and plan to eventually (slowly) invest in stuff. I just want to make sure we have what we need to begin!
Thanks for the help and the great blog!
