In reply to The Lemming:
I'm pretty shit in this catagory!
Indiglo watch to tell the time.
Garmin Etrex summit GPS. Very rarely even switch it on and if I do its for a grid ref or easy nav to a pre programmed waypoint.
One thing I do love is my mapping system, I got memory map for most of the UK and often print an A4 section of where I'm going and laminate it. Saves messing with a full map, its waterproof and it can be used again and again.
Even my cameras are basic - a basic Canon compact and a Nikon L810 cross over.
Maybe I'm old school - its me again the wilderness, not my tech against the wilderness.

I think this is the first time I have been called middle class.
I have arrived! Thank you.
Seriously, though, if you are away for a long time, then food prep becomes very important. Nothing tastes as good as fresh food.
Of course there are lighter options if one is travelling alone or in a very small team, but in a big squad it is worth getting some good utensils, and especially worth getting a couple of big pans.
