Here comes mine and Jon’s gear lists. This is what we have packed for our 5 day trip in Jotunheimen. Below every picture you’ll find a link to our gear lists (Excel files). If you have any improvements or comments please drop them below. I don’t think we have time to make large adjustments but it’s always nice to get feedback.
As you’ll find in the spreadsheets we’ve shared some gear between each other like the sleeping- and cooking system. My list will be complete with all the stuff I use if I were to go on a solo trip.
The real interesting thing is that last year on our longest trip, 4 days, we carried packs that weighed in at 22-24kg each including water… As you can see below, things have changed my friends!
My list – 8.9kg

Great weather outside this whole weekend and now that I finally had received everything to make the first pitch it was time to do it. I waited for Jon to come home from his grandpa’s as he needs to know how to pitch the tent as much as I do.
Here are some pictures with the tent setup in our yard. Unfortunately we mowed the lawn afterwards 🙂
Pitched infront of our house.
Me and my daughter Alma enjoying the new tent. Granite Gear Crown V.C 60 in the foreground and Black Diamond Alpine Carbon Cork trekking poles holding everything up in place.
Jon holds the door open.
Looks like a dog sits behind the tent but it’s actually Jon with his cap on leaning forward making adjustments on the guylines.
