In planning for Leadville 2010 I have been doing the training and am starting to focus on the gear I will need.
My question goes to those experienced ultra people we have here. Obviously at the aid stations we have drop bags, but do these bags get transported to each individual station after the other or are they like "this bag goes to mile 13" "this bag goes to mile 45" etc? This will be very helpful on which bag I put batteries for my headlamp in, extra shoes and such.
Also, I use a camelbak octane currently with a fair amount of storage, what do you typically carry with you and what do you let sit in your bags? I have been planning on keeping with me at all times, socks, 1 set of batteries, 1 extra bulb set, arm/leg warmers, moleskin/superglue, and my food. Is there anything magical that I am leaving out?
On my 50 where I qualified for western states I switched shoes around the halfway mark. How often do you typically change shoes and socks on the 100's?
Yeah.....I have a lot of questions. I'll tack more on later.
Thanks for the help!
