All I can think about at the moment is packing for my next big trip. Why? Well, it’s going to be a little like The Packing Olympics. I’m headed to a formal awards gala in Las Vegas (read: cocktail dresses) but first I’m stopping by the Grand Canyon for an ambitious hiking and camping trip. My suitcase/duffel bag is going to be confused to say the least.
Plus, though I’ve done a little camper camping in my day and plenty of day hiking, I’ve never gone on a full-fledged camping trip, much less one that involved plane travel to get there. I’ve decided that the trick is to bring the RIGHT amount of gear–not too much and not too little.
