Some of this will come out so I can wear it and we know there are a few more things to get but we are pretty much there. What’s left is mostly small things.  We need to put in our medicines (lots of Tylenol, blister cream and Imodium). We are waiting on our rain ponchos, Michelle has a source who is getting those for us and will be the heaviest addition.  I have to get all the wires and chargers for the still to be backed camera, tablet, and iPhone. Yes, we are loaded up with the tech since we will be writing about the journey and sharing it.

I’m hovering around 22 lbs with a full water bladder so I think I’m still good. I hope to keep it to under 25 lbs.
