---- gear list ----

Since this is a cycle touring blog, then the law dictates that it must have a gear list – it can't be avoided. So, here's mine. How many of you, if you had to list every single item you own, could do so? Knowing that I can is nicely liberating to an anti-consumerist like myself.
