    Paracord (about 5m)
    Rape whistle
    Spare batteries (2 sets of spares for GPS and torch)

    Rangefinder

    Clothes
    2x thermals (top and bottom)
    3x wool socks
    2x shorts
    2x long pants (would cut this to one if needed)
    1x waterproof overtrou (Goretex)

    Gaiters (swazi hush putties)
    Spare set of thermals, socks and beanie (in a drybag in case of emergency)
    Hiking pole (macpac C3)

    Food (7 days worth)

    15x Coffee sachets
    10x Museli bars
    1kg scroggin/trail mix
    2x block of chocolate

    Insta-mash and freeze dried peas
    3x Brown onion gravy sachets (makes the insta-mash delicious)
    4x Back Country dinners
    8x Cup-a-soup sachets
    3x Replace sachets (700ml electrolyte replacement)

    Dog stuff
    Dog
    Para cord lead
    Fleece jacket (for at night if it gets cold or she is farting)
    Dog pack (so she can carry her food if we fly camp)
    Collapsible canvas bowl
    Food for 7 days

    I think that's about it - from the top of my head so I have probably missed something. If you see any glaring omissions please let me know so I can pack it.

    Cheers,
    Adam

    I wasn't planning on it. I figure because we are on the tops we might escape the bugs? Maybe not...
    Probably should add sunblock to the list

    There is one thing on the list I specifically went out and bought when I found out @Philipo was to be my buddy... I'll leave it to you to guess what that was.
