Packing List

The packing list is still a work in progress.  I'll update this page as changes are done.  Last I weight the pack it was 25lbs most of the stuff but no water.  Water adds another 9 to 13 lbs depending on how much I need to take along.

I'm still pondering if I can just take the pack as a carry on on the flights.
