Wow…this is a big subject! I thought the biggest planning would be about where I am going to go, but my obsession now is what the heck I am going to take with me! I am fighting between two major schools of thought: 1. Pack light and 2. Be prepared for anything. I have quickly realized that I can’t do both, well at least not completely. If those two options were placed on a scale I am aiming to be a little bit closer to the “Pack Light” option.
I am going to try and cover what my exhaustive internet research has taught me about bags, first aid, clothing, etc on these pages.
