here’s everything i’m taking on my trip. while the amount of clothing is staying about the same, i’m taking about half the “extras” i took to Vietnam. i’m also taking far less camera gear. i realized about halfway through that trip that i really overpacked / overplanned for the “what ifs” which did nothing but give me a heavier pack. a few more trips and i should have the ultimate gear list perfected…
-1 long t
-1 semi dress shirt
-1 pr. trunks
-2 pr. socks
-3 pr. drawers
-1 fleece pullover
-1 pr. trail runners

shades, lite multitowel, pacsafe 85, trusty timex watch, €100, wilderness wash, led headlamp, elastic clothesline, spork, international driver’s license, extra passport photos, copies of all documents, extra credit / debit card, and my sweet passport.
toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, deo, q-tips, bandaids, imodium, tweezers, needle / thread, pepto tablets, Tylenol, Advil, and my inhaler which all fits in my handy green REI toiletry kit bag.

everything above fits in my kelty tornado 4200 backpack and weights in just under 32lbs. it should all do me just fine for the 15 or so days we are traveling through. and just in case i get bored on the flights over, my iphone will be in my pocket loaded up with new crosswords, new podcasts, and great new music thanks to a certain pretty lady.
i think i’m set.
