Geared, Packed and Prepped

After spending lots of time cross comparing other traveler’s packing lists, reading RTW travel packing suggestions and taking endless trips to REI we finally completed our gear list and packing. That is, as long as Will doesn’t change his mind about his pack again and I’m satisfied with taking only three pairs of shoes! ūüôā You can read more on how we planned for¬†what to pack over here.

Jenny’s clothes and accessories unpacked, then packed!


You’ll be seeing a lot of this outfit…

With all our gear packed, what do you think the weight of each pack would be? Any guesses?

Jenny’s is about 19 lbs (less once she eats all her Probars) and Will’s is about 24 lbs since he has the electronics (camera and laptop). The challenge will be not adding too much¬†to the packs as we go and getting used to the weight on our backs. Now we’re¬†off to load up our¬†packs, practice hiking around with them, purchase¬†any last minute needs¬†and wait to fly out on February 10th.
Cheers to adventure!
