Hello all! I just wanted to take a brief moment in my last minute preparations to show what I'm lugging on this trip. On the left is a 45 liter Kelty ruck sack and on the right is a medium/largish old duffle bag I had lying around. It may seem as though I am over packing, but each bag is only about half full and I plan on relying mostly on the rucksack while the duffle is for extra items and space to store things that I buy. Furthermore, I also wanted extra room so that I could carry anything that people bought but didn't have room for in their own bags. This way, other members of the group may be able to bring something home that they may not have originally been able to.
