Hi, this is my first post and first thread lol. Me and my buddy are planning a RTW trip that would last around 8 -10 months I was wondering if any one would have some input on what gear we will need and what is the best gear to get. All you help is appreciated.

1) really sturdy and reliable bag
2) lots of cash
3) good guidebooks (buy on the road!)

Don't bother buying too much gear, I've found that the money in the pocket usually is more useful than any gear you might have bought with it. There are some knicknacks that can be useful, I admit that, but please think hard about what you really really need.

Take only what will fit in a carry on bag. It will help with the airport, taxi, crowded buses. You name it. In that time things will wear out so no worries about carrying too much. If you need it buy on the road. Ask any Vet on this site and they will say the same. Enjoy!
