Practical Info Personal Gear

You do not need much. Sunglasses, sun cream and plasters for potential blisters. Your preferred painkiller- a hot dry day can leave you with a headache if you’ve just arrived from the frozen north. A headlamp is very useful- you don’t need the most expensive but don’t be tempted by the ultracheap ones as they always break. 

Small binoculars can be useful. Any camera should be kept in a plastic bag most of the time as sand gets everywhere- and will jam motors. Wet wipes are essential for getting clean in a no-washing environment.

Use them before a meal as infections are most easily spread from hand to mouth. Take a toilet roll and when you have finished burn the toilet paper- it will last as long as papyrus otherwise thousands of years. Bury the rest under a good pile of stones.
