Dear Katie,
I thought I'd send you a quick email to remind you what to take n our hike this weekend!
First, it may get cold, so make sure you take some warm clothes. I know your rucksack is quite small, so if you don't have enough space, you can put some things in mine. I will bring the first and kit in case we have any small accidents, but can you bring the insect repellent, as there will probably be a lot of mosquitoes at night. Oh, yes, please take some sunscreen, too, so you don't get burnt. Don't forget to bring a pen knife too, as they come in handy for all sorts of thins.
