Among other things, very similar to my list, Lee will be carrying our 3 pound backpackers tent, an iPhone, and a compass.

  1. It was great to see Lee on his last night in Texas. Hopefully by now his test is finished and he will head to CT! You didn’t list pj’s or a pillow. Even a blow u

    1. I know Lee was so happy to see you all as well! And now have his test complete!
      I will have to repurpose “day clothes” for pajamas due to space constraints! But will add a pillow case to my bag, thanks for the reminder! Then when a pillow is needed, I can stuff the case with unused clothes. A whole new way of living… 🙂

  2. The thrills of packing/decisions, decisions/adding/ removing/adding again. Not to mention unpacking enroute to the airport tent stakes and any other “pointy” objects. Love, Love, Love, xoxoxoxox
