What do we pack?


Hobbitfeets- A beginning

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”- J.R.R. Tolkien

I found this trip to be one of the most difficult trips to pack for. Between the multiple types of outings we have planned, and what I’ve been told to expect, I really have been at a bit of a loss. The trusty internet didn’t seem to have any true cohesive lists for me to pull from. Once again, I found myself pulling from what I consider the best resource: my clients.

With their helpful input, I cross referenced all our planned activities on an excel sheet. I knew I didn’t want to over pack and planned for doing laundry in our down time. I also got several excellent suggestions for items that could be washed in the sink and dry overnight.

Here’s some of what I am packing:


  • 1 set thermal underclothes (top and bottom)
  • 1 base layer shirt
  • 2 pairs “adventure pants” as Kevin calls them
  • 2 pairs leggings
  • 1 pair running pants
  • 5 pairs wool or other type hiking socks
  • 5 pairs ExOfficio underwear
  • 1 set of pajamas
  • 7 tops
  • 3 sports bras
  • 5 tank tops
  • 3 rash guards
  • 1 diving skin
  • 1 pair hiking shoes
  • 1 pair teva sandals
  • 1 pair flip flops
  • 1 pair soft ankle boots
  • 1 Tilley Hat
  • 2 fleece jackets
  • 1 rain jacket
  • 1 puffer down jacket
  • 1 puffer vest
