Karhunkierros 2020

Exactly 5 full days minus one dinner. Maximum pack weight was around 12-13 kg excluding water. Would not have needed battery bank: in airplane mode had 60% charge left, even after taking pictures. Would like to drop around 2kg in weight. Had 1kg too much food. On a solo trip would carry a tent, so the extra food weight of this trip makes up for that. By doing the following, would drop a total of 1616g of weight: -Leave home aclima tee if not wearing all day -Leave home powerbank -Replace sleeping bag with feathered friends flicker 20F YF -Change trangia to UL gas cookset -Replace broken pillow with UL pillow + An additional 100g could be dropped by replacing steripen with water filter
