Camøno thru-hike Packing List for 4 days

Base weight 4.5 kg not including photography equipment or 5.4 kg including the camera gear

I recently thru-hiked 144 kilometres on both the Danish islands of Møn and Nyord in 4 days at the end of May 2020. I packed everything that I needed for 4 days and 3 nights and I carried it all on my back including all my food and fuel. The weather was perfect with nearly no rain and the temperatures ranged from 13℃ up to 18℃. In the middle of the days it was very hot and the sun burnt. Sun protection was a necessity!

I also carried 860 grams of photography equipment. See below list for details. If I deduct this camera gear from the totals then my base weight was only 4.5 kg. I carried at least 1 litre of water when I could top up my water supplies during the day. In the evenings I had access to water 2 out of 3 nights. One day I had to carry 2 extra litres of water for supplies 4 km to my campsite.

Only one opportunity presented itself for me to purchase anything else that I needed during the entire hike and that was on the last day at Dagli’ Brugsen Fanefjord in Store Damme. I was also able to purchase a cola and ice cream from the camping grounds reception at Møn bridge as well. Everything else was closed because it was not the “summer season” yet I was repeatedly told. In the summer season you would have the chance to buy some café food at Møns Cliff GeoCentre but other than that there is not much more on offer except for the little shop at the harbour at Klintholm. It was not open when I was there so early in the day.

I packed a cut-off end section from a Sawyer squeezable pouch (8 grams) and used it as a scoop to fill my 1 litre soda bottle that I use for carrying my water in the warmer months of the year. Filling from shallow sinks can be a challenge when using long water containers. It would of been an impossible task to fill at the hand sink without the scoop. Before the COVID-19 days I just used my folding cup but at the moment I’ll just stick to my scoop.

I made these notes when I arrived home:

  • I could of saved 23 g for 1 camera battery which was not used
  • I still had two indicators showing on the Anker PowerCore 10000 mAh 200 g. I could of taken the Anker PowerCore 5000 mAh 150 g and saved 50 grams
  • the extra memory card for my camera was not used although it only weighs 2 grams
  • only 84 ml of fuel was used so I could of save a lot of weight here
  • I’m really happy that I packed the Body Glide because monkey butt is not fun 🙈

  1. Hej Brian. Jeg sætter stor pris på, og finder stor inspiration i dine indlæg, tanker og turbeskrivelser.

    Et lille spørgsmål: Hvor larmende er dit überlite underlag? Nogle af dem ‘knitrer’ helt utroligt – andre er i mere fleksibelt materiale der giver sig lidt uden folie i midten.

    Mvh Kristian

    1. Hej Kristian, tak for at have læst bloggen og dit kompliment.

      For at være ærlig, kan jeg ikke høre nogen forskel mellem den og den Therm-A-Rest Neoair XLite, som jeg plejer at bruge, og synes ikke at de larmer sådan at de irriterer mig. Jeg ved, at nogle mennesker siger, at de laver for meget larm, men det er ikke, hvordan jeg ser det.

      Jeg kan godt lige überliten og på Møn var det den første gang, at jeg har brugt den.
      Jeg skal ud i weekenden igen så jeg vil prøve at høre efter.
