About my gear

Because gear lists on other blog helped me a lot before my trip, I finally wrote one as well. Over the last two and a half years my gear changed a lot. I bought new stuff, I sent useless things home and lost a few thing as well. Soon, probably from Quito, I’ll send again a whole bunch of things home.
