According to a programme I was watching, John Muir’s equipment for his 1000 mile walk consisted of a bar of soap, a towel, three books, a compass and $20.

When Nick Crane was preparing for his epic walk across the crests of the European mountains, he was advised to take three socks only*.

Do I overpack?

Probably, but I like the option of not smelling like a dead badger when I stop, some clean dry clothes, something to read, something to write in.
