I have to be on a bus to Seattle in 48 hours- Will be in the Bering Sea for 75 days on a processor.
Never been that far North- looking for some last minute gear advice.
Just learned I’ll be working on the stern handling the codends/gear- as opposed to the bridge- where I was initially going to be.
I’m supposed to bring 8 days of gear as laundry is once a week.
I’m mainly wondering how much should be cold/wet weather gear? And how much should be “regular” clothes?
So far I have packed-
Bags-duffel bag and backpack- both with waterproof liners.
2 Surefire G2 flashlights, Petzl headlamp- extra batteries.
Benchmade folding knife- and couple of extras as backup.
Razors, toothpaste, shampoo, etc.
Cell phone. I know- won’t work.
2 Alarm clocks and batteries.
MP3 player- batteries.
Licenses/papers/passport, etc- in waterproof bag.
1 cap, 2 beanies.
3 sets polypro long underwear.
Couple of sweters/sweatshirts
8 each- pants, tshirts,
12 pair socks
2 sets raingear- one is military (2 piece) one is WalMart. I live in Colorado so that’s all I could find on my budget- they sell Grundens on the ship. I’ll buy some.
Steel toe boots- can/will buy “Extra Tuf” on the ship.
Couple of books/notebook/pens.
I need to buy some gloves- any recommendations? (that I can get in Colorado)
Any other advice?
Anything to lose/get?
