Now, you might worry how to pack that all into your bags. Well, you don’t have to bring it all. Just pick out the things you want and make your own checklist.
To make it easier for you to locate your things in your backpack, create a system that will enable you to immediately point where you placed a particular item in your pack. Say a check mark before an item means it is located in the hood of your pack, a backslash means it is located in the green ditty bag in the pack. Overtime, you will be able to formulate your own checklist.
I have already made my own personal checklist now and got my own system of packing. I hope this will also help you out on your packing. I have a downloadable link here in case you want to download the file. CLICK HERE to download.
