As promised, here are my packing pictures. I have the terrible feeling I've way overpacked, but for the life of me I couldn't cut anything out. I'm sure I'll shed on the way, but to start out, I'll be fully prepared!
First up: Clothing.
Next up: Stuff.
|The only thing not shown is the neck pillow, which will be strapped to the outside of my blue pack.|
The bags are fairly heavy. My estimate is that the gear pack (blue) is about 30-35 pounds and the day pack (green) is about 10-15 pounds.
I plan to shed the airplane socks, two books and of course the munchies, fairly quickly (within a few days/one week of arrival). As for everything else... we'll see!
Tomorrow dad will take a picture of me with my pack(s) on and I'll post that later.
For now, time to get some sleep, if I can, and enjoy my last night in a familiar bed.
