Christine called me at work today, “I worked on packing all morning. My pack weighs 30 lbs.”
We aim for 10% of our body weight…which means Christine’s goal weight for her pack is less than half of that.
“What’s in there??” I asked.
But, you see, the weight adds quickly. A few shirts. Some shampoo. Some sunblock. An extra pair of shoes and BAM! You’re over where you need to be.
So, we unpacked it and spread it on the floor and determined that some things could go; but it was hard to do!
Packing simply/ lightly will never be an easy task! 🙂
