My Long-Term Packing List - The Gear

Packin'

One of the most popular questions people ask me in regards to long-term travel is how I pack for such a trip. I’ve seen many other travel bloggers list all their stuff right down to the dental floss and I thought that was kinda fun. So, before I packed up on Tuesday night I laid out all my stuff and took some photos for your viewing pleasure.

When I traveled to Argentina and Colombia I checked 2 bags along with a small laptop backpack. On this trip I cut my stuff to 1 bag (49.5 lbs) and the laptop backpack. I gotta tell you, it feels great, I feel so light and free.

Here’s my stuff…

    The bug repellent from Passport Health is legit. Used it while traveling in Southeast Asia. Not a single bite!

    I haven’t used it yet but I’m pretty excited about whipping it out at the right time. I’m more worried about those things that swim up your pee hole if I go into the amazon. Gross!

    WOW! You pack a whole lotta shoes. That’s gotta be at least 10 lbs right there = just about my entire limit of stuff :)

      How many shoes do you have? Those are all pretty essential. Basketball shoes always weigh the most.

      Look at the first photo! The Dakine monster and a Case Logic all black computer bag. Best purchases of my life.
