Gear Shakedown

by Patrick on December 26, 2010

I decided to video everything going in my pack, if you prefer to read about it scroll down.

Packing for 14 days in one back-pack was a little daunting.  So I started researching what others are doing by reading blogs.  Tim Ferris has a great post on his fourhourworkweek blog.  I took some of Tim’s advice and then adapted it for aviation, see previous post about packing.  I think I finally have everything together, here is a list of the clothing I am taking:

Computer Equipment was also another tough area.  Since our goal is to capture as much video and still footage as possible I want to bring as much gear as possible.  Unfortunately this isn’t really possible.  So here is what I am bringing.  The Booq bag has a special padded slot for a laptop and another compartment for a SLR style camera.

As the trip unfolds I will let you know what I wish I had and what I could have done with out.
