Packing List for my Skjoldungestien Hike

My TOTAL PACK WEIGHT for this hike was 7.6 KG including water, food, fuel and photography equipment.

It even included a Helinox ground chair. I was going to use my Borah Gear 7×9 Ultralight tarp & Borah Gear ultralight cuben bivy sack which I carried all day and is in this pack. However, my plans changed as the day progressed. I ended up hiking all the way into Roskilde, via Boserup Forest, finishing the hike (36 km) and then took a train back to my car in Hvalsø where my car was parked. Then I drove back up to the camp-site and parked only 500 m from the site. I had my Tarptent Notch in the car, I was planning on pitching both the Borah Gear tarp & Tarptent Notch as I had promised someone on FB that I would video how much place there was in the Notch. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough room for both pitches so I just slept in the Notch. I’ll defiantly use the Borah Gear tarp & bivy next time; can’t wait.
