Test Packing Day


Today I’m getting together with Jess to check all our gear, weigh it all, and do a trial pack of it all.

It’s not going to be easy to fit everything we think we need into just a 15kg limit for each of us. The best advice I’ve heard is to lay it all out on a bed, then just keep taking items out.

I’m often surprised when unpacking from a trip how many items I took that I used only once or not at all. That’s true for me whether it’s an overnight hike or a month long overseas adventure.
