I’ve packed. And unpacked. Packed again. Unpacked again. Rearranged. Sorted. Re-sorted. Hummed and hawed. Extra shoelaces (for a makeshift clothesline) or no extra shoelaces? A full roll of Leukotape (for blisters) or just a small bit wrapped around a piece of cardboard? The sleeping pad? Nope. Too heavy. The dress? Nope. Not necessary. The colourful silk scarf? You bet!
ENOUGH ALREADY! When I start obsessing over milligrams I know it’s time to hit the road. Sadly I still have nine more sleeps to go. I’d best go rearrange my backpack again!
