The day has finally come. We packed our small lives in our moderately sized car and we set off from Philadelphia for Chicago.
I’ve always found it easier to pack lightly while traveling; you’ll just be stuck carrying around those two checked bags for hours while not even wearing all those shoes you packed. However, this trip might be my exception.
Here are just my camping items – most of these items will be somewhat useless while visiting cities. And according to most ultralight hiking blogs, this is fairly light (mind you for an inexperienced hiker shooting for the lifestyle of Wild). This is less than half my life I’m bringing with me. Here’s a more accurate picture:
PS, that purple backpack is bigger in person than appears in that picture.
See you soon, Chicago.
