Packing: the most stressful moment of every expedition. What do I take? What do I need? Do I have everything? Will I have overweight?
All those questions go through your mind. All those months of reading and checking things out. Less weight - more quality. I never make a checklist, I see it as it comes along. In general it takes a few weeks to gather all the stuffs. And than starts the ordering and reordering the chaos into the climbing and trekking bags.
