If you saw my YouTube video on me packing up my backpack for my first Camino de Santiago, you know I was at 17 lbs. At the time, I thought I had it all figured out. Now that there are less than 44 hours until my plane takes off, I have a problem! I went from 17 lbs to 20 lbs to 18 lbs. In effect, plus a pound and minus all my sleeping clothes, one outfit and a foot off the side and a foot off the top of the sleeping blanket. I am down to two shorts and three shirts plus the shower dress for my 46 days away.
Where did the weight come from you ask? Turns out I need a flashlight. It needs spare batteries for said batteries. I also forgot to pack up the camera gear. It was rightly suggested I bring sunscreen which prompted me to also bring my vitamins. Who knew all this stuff would be so heavy!
