I would be interested in a list of your camping gear and things you wish you would have brought for camping


Main Items:
Cabelas XPG 4 man Tent (really 2 man)

Katadyn Base Camp Water Filtration (bring reserve manual pump as some times you don't want to wait for the slow drip, drip... drip)

MSR Firefly stove (fuel)

Big Agnes Faraway Mummy Bag and Pad (need synthetic bag because everything gets wet)

Cabelas Alaskan Guide pack Frame

XXL dry bags for all gear

Montana Saw and Gerber Hatchet

Panasonic FZ-150 Camera - Shoots 12MP stills and 1080p video (We used 3 battery packs over 10 days)

Iridium Sat Phone and Solar Charger (We prepaid for 180 minutes which was too much)

Assorted Mountain House Foods (We planned for 1/person/day and that ended up being more than necessary)

Items we would add:
We were limited to 125lbs/person and ended up at 180lbs combined so had alot of room for comfort items that we would have brought
Better chairs (something full height)
Folding camp table
Cooler and more fresh/frozen foods
Ratchet pruners to clear trail for packing meat

Items to leave behind:
Less clothes - Only need 1 good outer layer and rain gear. Only need to change base layers daily.

Eberlestock J1 Dragonfly - This was my pack and worked great but we only used the packframe which was much better suited for carrying loads.

On my list to do before I am 40 for sure. Going to have to save though, seems like it's about a $3000-$4000 trip in total.
