HDT Packing List

Preparation for this trip has required careful planning and anticipation of everything we might encounter on the trail. Due to the length of the trip, we are going to be starting in some cold conditions. Its freezing at night in Moab, which means we're going to need warm clothes - at least until over the Henrys. Luckily, we'll be able to shed excess clothing and equipment as we go along. As you can tell from this list, we aren't from the UltraLite school of thought.
