jeans, a tee shirt, and a laptop…

10 Nov

Ok, maybe I’m bringing a bit more than that.  But I tried really hard to bring as few things as possible, and to follow the advice of many message boards and not exceed a pack size of 55L. 

This bag is one we actually already had at home.  It’s a Gregory G Pack and I found out it’s a large – so it holds 51 liters or 2950 cubic inches.  


So far, the packing list is:

4 tee shirts

1 polo

1 long sleeve shirt

2 collar shirts

2 jeans

1 fleece

1 waterproof jacket shell

1 pair of pants for hiking

1 pair of shorts

1 bathing suit

1 pair of flip flops

5 boxers

5 pairs of socks

5 wife beaters

1 pocket camera

1 dslr

1 mini laptop


1 quick dry towel

and toiletries…


and then there were two

31 Oct

Yeee, it worked.

The blog was so good, I got a friend to come on the trip.

Danny is going to join me for Chile, Arengtina, and Brazil!

So everyone else reading, see how easy that was?  Just quit your job or steal as many pencils and staplers as it takes to get fired (hey the economy sucks anyway) and come along as well!

Here’s the new plan:

Start in Buenos Aires with day trips to Uraguay and stay for about 3 weeks, including New Years

Then go to west to Cordoza (university town)

And then on to Mendoza and Santiago and down Chile as previously planned

Loop around Patagonia and Ushuaia (lowest point of SA) and head on up to Rosario

Check out the waterfalls and then to Salvador for Carnival Feb 19th

A week or so there and then to Rio de Janeiro for 3 to 4 weeks or until Danny goes home and I go on to Bolivia.
