After doing a final load of laundry this afternoon, I packed my backpack for my trip which begins with a one night stay in Seattle tomorrow night.
Ironically I have packed more this time for my 2 week trip than I had for my entire 7 (well cut to 3) month trip to Europe earlier this year.
For one, I’m packing heavier clothing. Instead of shorts and swimwear I’ve got sweaters, sweat tops and jackets.
I also have packed enough to not need to do any laundry while I’m away.
Yes, I packed 18 pairs of socks and underwear.
And 8 tshirts, 4 sweat tops, 3 pairs of pants, 1 sweater, a jacket, toque, hat, gloves and a scarf.
Oh, and a big box of hot shots hand warmers.
Add all the other things like laptop, adapters, cords, toiletries and a sleeping bag and I ended up at 32 pounds.
That’s one heavy backpack! Luckily we’ll have a 4×4 so it won’t be on my back most of time.
1 day to go!!!
