Stuff To Ship Home

I left Portland yesterday and quickly realized that I’ve got too much stuff in my pack!  Not that the weight was a bother (at the moment), but the size of my pack was annoying.

Pack with StuffI originally was going to pack just a 35 liter pack before I starting thinking of what I was bringing and decided to upgrade to a 70 liter pack (50 liter main, with a 20 liter attachable backpack).

It’s an awesome pack and will get me far, but before I left out of Portland I packed the pack fully (on accident) and also packed up my little pack.  Horrible idea.

Me and PaigeWell with the help of my super amazingly awesome friend Paige, we took the time to go through all I brought and find out what isn’t necessary to bring.  Before I just started throwing things in my bag without giving it a lot of thought and she helped me take out all those extra items I don’t really need or are duplicates.

I’ve now got the following:

  • 3 t-shirts
  • 3 button ups
  • 2 long sleeve shirts
  • 1 rain jacket
  • 5 underwears
  • 5 socks
  • 2 undershirts
  • 1 reversible belt
  • Light scarf
  • 1 alpaca blanket (Lewis hooked me up)
  • 1 inflatable pillow
  • 1 microfiber towl
  • Toiletries
  • Computer/tablet/pc with charger
  • etc.

I took out quite a bit.  Like 5 shirts, an airplane pillow, an extra battery deal with a large charger, underwear, socks, etc.  I just simply packed too much.

Now my small pack can fit in my big pack making it so that I don’t have to carry two packs (annoying).

San Francisco area has been fun times.  Currently at Paige’s place in Oakland listening to all her roommates banter while cleaning their place.  It’s great.
