Equipment List: Erie Canal

Here is a list of everything I took on my walk along the Erie Canal. I’m working on a separate post to review the items I brought, going through what worked and what didn’t, and what I’d leave at home next time.

    – 1 pair of jeans
    – 1 pair of conversion pants
    – 1 pair long underwear
    – 1 pair shorts
    – 1 long sleeve shirt
    – 2 tee-shirts (1 cotton, one hiking)
    – 2 tank tops
    – 5 pairs of underwear
    – 5 pairs of socks
    – 2 bras
  Rain jacket + rain pants
  Fleece jacket
  Sleeping pad
  Sleeping bag
  1 Nalgene bottle
  Walking Stick
  Flashlight/emergency radio
    – quick-dry adventure towel
    – toothbrush
    – toothpaste
    – Noxzema wipe thingies
    – contacts + solution
    – glasses
    – cell phone
    – laptop
    – mp3 player
    – digital camera

Anna’s Pack
  travel dog bowl
  poop bags
  vet papers
  bag balm

And some miscellaneous stuff such as: ibuprofen, antihistamines, crossword book, pens and paper, wallet w/ money and ID and stuff.

Anna’s food was divided into about 8-10lbs each and kept in waterproof ziploc freezer bags. I kept the bulk of her food in my bag, with about 5lbs in two separate bags divided between her two saddle packs. This means the farther I walked, the more she ate and the lighter my pack became!

I used the ziploc bags for a lot of stuff – to keep things water proof, or to put my dirty laundry separate from the rest, or just keep things a little more organized within the pack. And I took a few extras with me.

I’m sure there’s one or two items I’ve forgotten to mention, but that’s pretty much everything I took with me.

Edit: D’oh. Yeah, and I also took along a First Aid Kit, with some added first aid stuff for Anna.

  1. You have inspired me to do this in 2013. Im trying to get some school out of the way first. I plan on going from Jacksonville FL to Arlington, Washington. 😀 I am so very inspired, thank you! This is exactly what I’ve been looking to do with my life.

    • That sounds awesome – glad I could inspire and help push the decision to take your own adventure! If you need anyone to chat with or bounce ideas off of or whatnot, feel free to email me (ameranth at gmail dot com). Good luck on finishing school and on any future adventures!
