Travel Carry Kit

There has been a certain amount of incredulous reaction to my going on a 21 day trip to Canada and the US and intending to do it with a single carry on backpack…well plus my Everyday Sling.

It forced me to do an equipment check just to be sure – it all fits fine and isn’t too heavy. The stickers are the heaviest element! I’ll buy toiletries over there and if I need anything smart I’ll buy that as well but I doubt it – because – well – have you met me 🙂
