"The right kit and you get this. Free." from Bleck Cra Contract pics
Picture: The right kit and you get this. Free. (Contract pics)

Carry it off
What to carry ….. ? “I told the boy with the boat and him in the helicopter to hop it, because I put my faith in thee God. So how is it I now find myself before you, drenched to the gusset and dead as a kipper?” “Well stupid, who do you think sent the boat and the helicopter?” If you want God to be with you in the hills, use what he gives you - brains. Follows, a description of kit a la Cra. Abhorring cosmetic applications for men as I do, it came as a surprise (eons ago) to the local pharmacist to sell me a bottle of pheromone-loaded gloop. The free bum-bag therewith comprised my first ever hillwalking kit and I still wear one, for’d, to carry camera, binos, compass, foil blanket and flashable light; compass and light tied in. Balancing aft, a small, sound day sac with accessible pockets and enough straps to audition for late night C4 - and therein one oversized bombproof layer - perfect size keeps you in your modelling job; big size keeps you alive. Stuffed also into sac, waterproof over-trousers. In outside sac pockets, pair of waterproof gloves, waterproof hat and buff. Accessibility is key. Simple calorie-laden rations - to be plundered in extremis, like not enough gas to get home. If you want to eat dinner, eat it at a dinner table; if you want to walk the hills, walk the hills. C’est ca. Soft-framed shades that second as goggles. Waterproof map in a map pocket, on a lanyard to the sac. Rest of the kit? Wear it - including gaiters, discarding them only in the highest and driest of summers. Too much kit on: warm for a bit. Too little kit on: cold for eternity. 25 years to construct.
