This is my very first backpacking trip ever and I am on it right now! No, I didn’t bring my laptop along for the journey as I am off the grid. Although I am looking forward to sharing what I’ve experienced upon my return. I have really minimized my packing for a week and believe that this trip will truly give me new perspective on minimalism and environmentalism. I have with me the clothes on my back and a single change of clothes including a skirt, thermal top and bottom, a fleece, down vest, sandals, sleeping bag, headlamp, and food. I also have extremely minimal toiletries and a journal. I know there will be a great deal to share!
