Well, I'm packed!
Here us what I'm taking on the VDLP
I'm not sure if I can put these photos in order. I'm practicing blogging from my phone. So here goes.
The first thing I'm packing is my nysil pack cover. If it's not raining hard enough for the Altus poncho, ill wear a rain jacket and use this pack cover. It's also good to help keep pickpockets out of my pack at the airport bus stop.
Second, into the bottom of the pack goes my down sleep blanket.
Next goes in my water bladder
I have several nysil packets filled with needful things.
In the blue bag goes all my cold and wet weather gear.
Smartwool long johns
Merino lambs wool sweater
Camino forum buff
In the white nysil bag goes clothing;
Tan macabi hiking skirt
Green plaid shirt
2 pair liners
1 travel bra
In the other nysil bag are 2 smaller bags
Bag 1 has first aid items:
Essential oil for Mosquitos
Bag 2 has laundry and bath items:
Toothbrush and paste
Soap and scrubby cloth
Cream deoderant (red container)
Safety pins for hanging clothes
In the top pocket of my pack are:
Wool longjohn top
Blue sun shirt (gauze)
I'm wearing on the plane:
Grey macabi skirt
Black smartwool shirt
New balance shoes
Black travel bra
My pack weighs 13.5 pounds
Tomorrow I will spray the outside with permethrin. Then I'm ready to go!
