Things are happening fast now. This evening I will post my packing list and a photo of everything I’m taking on this trip. This may seem odd but a lot of work has gone into each item with the goal of reducing weight but having enough.
One if the best quotes I’ve heard from other veteran pilgrims is that “typically half of the weight that a beginner carries in their pack is fear”. “What if” weighs a ton.
Once we are back, it will be fun to see how well we’ve done in listening to the advice if others. I feel pretty good about my pack weight. But even with this preparation I wonder how much fear I’ll start out with.
