Actually I got 2 light ponchos. The raincoat is heavy and bulky. OK, not sure now to bring it. Hassle of carrying it too.Ferry from Nigata looks cheapest option for Sado Island. Jetfoil is cool but treble the cost.
I'd bring the poncho and leave the heavy raincoat behind. Poncho will keep you dry and not weigh so much. A heavy raincoat is not very practical except for heavy rain days.
Are you going to do a one night test camp before you set off?
Niigata ferry, wow! Thanks.
I set up the tent yesterday and all is well for that. Got one more food item to buy that really is a money saver on the long run. Then today or tomorrow, ( might rain tomorrow and today is very windy ) I 'll set up the bike with all the gear and take it for a 3 hour test ride out in the country with a hill that I have to walk up on, steep grade and its probably a 10 minute hill. That will be my training.
