The Lost Girl’s 2017 Packing List

It’s only January and I already have my 2017 equipment ready to go! When compared to 2013 (half way down this page), you’ll see that I have lightened my load a bit as well as updated a few items with new versions.  If you have any questions you can always email me at: thelostgirlcamino@gmail.com.

The Lost Girl’s Original Packing List from 2013

Gregory pack
My original equipment list from 2013:
First there is the back pack. Mine is a Gregory Jade 38. Like most of my equipment, I tried many different brands and styles. The Jade 38 fits me and my gear better than any of the dozen others I tried. It also has a little “wiggle room” should I need to add anything–though I can’t imagine what.

For those of you who are asking about brands/models, I’ve included some links. Just remember, what works for me may not work for you.
