I am going camping this weekend. Packing is the hardest part.
Here is some of what I need to carry.
Food is not yet included and my clothes are not there yet. I still have to sort through what I want to carry and what I need to carry. There are two bad scenarios:
1. Wanting something in the middle of the camping trip and knowing you didn’t pack it.
2. Packing a lot of unnecessary gear that you waste space and energy carrying around but never use them.
Once all the gear is laid out, I go though and decide if Things are worth their weight, literally.
Later, I’ll show you the items that made the cut.
But for now, the focus isn’t on the stuff, it’s on the experience I am going to have. I am looking forward to looking up at smog-free skies at night to count the starts, and use my binoculars to watch birds in tall trees.
I am going camping today!
