31 days until we leave the country.
18 days until we leave Vermont.
12 days until we transport our kitties to their temporary guardians *sniff, sniff*, this one is particularly hard for us to deal with.
4 days until our last set of visitors arrives in Vermont.
How is it possible that we have only one month to finish the, oh, million items left on our giant “to-do” list??? 31 days. It doesn’t seem possible! We have been super busy here in Vermont and trying to balance enjoying where we are with making sure we are getting everything prepared for a year away is a bigger task than one might imagine. We’ve done a pretty decent job so far, and we have checked off many things on our list. The thing is, it seems like for every item we check off, at least one or two more come up to take its place.
The hardest part right now is just trying to figure out exactly what we are taking. We’ve looked at lots of other RTW travellers’ packing lists. We’ve bought some new gear, and chosen some of our old favorites that we think can make the trip. Now it’s down to the nitty-gritty, and when you are trying to carve it down to 5 shirts for the whole year, to span a climate range of 30-100 degrees as well as making sure the items are both hiking and city appropriate, well, let’s just say I’m surprised my head hasn’t exploded.
What are your favorite pieces of travel gear?
