#4 - DAY HIKE LOAD OUT - YOMP-ENGINE No1 - GORUCK GR2 VARIANT.


This is the last in a series of posts about the YOMP-ENGINE. Basically the hiking variant of my GORUCK GR2. This is the load-out, the gear the yomp-engine carries. Think of it like a kit that’s always in my pack ready to go. I guess a bit like a bugout bag that I use and enjoy all the time, for hiking and adventures.

I’ve designed this kit over many years to cover anything that might happen during a hike. Usually that’s nothing, usually I walk from A to B I get dirty and tired and that’s it but sometimes things do happen and when they do I want to be more ready than last time.

4 SEASONS IN 1 DAY:
What ever the season I'll carry the same gear, so I can rely that I'm carrying what I need without thinking about it. In my part of the world it can, rain at any time of the year and can be cold late in the day even in the summer. The main change to my gear would be the clothing; warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer, waterproof when it rains or snows ... no shit! : )

With above in mind and the trail before us, below is my list of gear I always carry, whether I need it or not, because in the end I always do.
THE YOMP-ENGINE LOAD OUT:

GEAR LIST:

WATER / COOKING / BREW KIT


• Nalgene Stainless Steel bottle [32oz]

SHELTER / PROTECTION


• Titan Emergence sleeping Bag

EMERGENCY



CHARGE / POWER / LIGHT



OUTER WEAR, OPTIONAL LAYERS


• Buff Neck Scarf
• MotoX Fox Beanie Hat
• Boonie Hat Multicam
• Dickies Leather Work Gloves

FEATURED GEAR

• GORUCK GR2 Rucksack
• Kifaru (L) Pullout Pouches
• Garmin Fenix 3 Saphire


So this is my YOMP-ENGINE load out and it’s always charging. Currently I’m interested in a new discipline... YOMP-SPEED! A fast hike, a slow run, it’s cross country and cross obstacles. If there’s a mountain it’s climbed, a river, it’s swam and this requires a very stripped down gear list but that’s another project and another post for the future. Until then be happy on this, “Good night”!
