T-Minus 6 days: Packing and Itinerary

SIX DAYS!!!!!!


HOLY SHIT! We leave in six days! Someone pinch me…its really happening! We have been planning and preparing for this trip for three months. We have done many trial packing events to make sure we have everything we need and nothing we don’t and that it can all fit in our packs. I am absolutely NOT an expert at this, but I have done a fair amount of research on what we will need/want along this crazy trip we have planned. So, since today we did another packing trial, I thought it might be fun/useful to see what we decided to pack and what we are packing all our stuff in.


What all that stuff is:


  • 3 Pairs of Pants (each)
  • 2 Pairs of Shorts (each)
  • 3-5 T-shirts each
  • 2 Long sleeve shirts (each)
  • 1 Pair of Long underwear (each)
  • 2 Jackets (each)
  • Rainwear
  • 4 Boardshorts (Ronen)
  • Too many bikinis (I am sorry, I just can’t help myself when it comes to buying and bringing swimsuits everywhere I go)
  • 1 Sundress (me)
  • 2 long skirts (Ronen…kidding, they’re mine ๐Ÿ™‚ )
  • 2 Quick Dry Shirts (each)
  • Warm hat (each)
  • Socks and undies

Other Items:

  • Sleeping bags
  • Sleeping bag liners
  • Sleeping mats
  • 2 Dry bags
  • 2 Hammocks/tarps
  • Mask and snorkels
  • First aid kit
  • miscellaneous Medication (Neosporin, Benadryl, Advil, etc.)
  • Locks of various types
  • Cable ties
  • Gear repair kits
  • Packable towels
  • Sink stoppers (so we can wash clothes in the sink)
  • Baby wipes
  • MRE’s (freeze-dried food)
  • Camp stove and Cooking pot
  • Water filter
  • Daypacks with water bladders (Camelback)
  • Passport photos for Visas

Miraculously, it all fits with room to spare!
