I am using most of the same gear from last year, but there have been a few things that I have had to purchase new for this trip. There are also things that I will need in the future to finish the trip:
1. Lightweight backpacking shovel
2. Rain gear
3. Dry compression sack
4. Sleeping bag liner
5. Base top and tights for the Sierras
6. 7 bags of high calorie horse feed
7. GAS! It takes a lot of gas to drive my rig along from Mexico to Canada.
8. Lots of carrots!
No expectations but everything helps!
