the packing list

Here is a list of the gear that I currently have with me in my backpack as I travel around the world. Yes, I know this is a lot of stuff, and I certainly could have done the trip with less gear. But for me this was the right balance to let me go hiking, scuba diving, get into nightclubs with a dress code, listen to my favorite music (and just kill time) on long train rides, and whathaveyou. I've had a few chances now to add some items and remove others, items i've removed from my pack are indicated by being crossed out. Props to REI and Amazon for being the major outfitters for this trip.
