I am sure a better packer could probably fit more stuff in, but here is my rei gemini empty and loaded






i still have some space. but taking jeans really hurt my options. if i were willing to wear light travel pants it would open up a lot more space.

To save space, I do only wear cargo pants and "footy" socks. Jeans are just too heavy and hell to dry...

Also, instead of a full-size flashlight, I use LED microlights.

I have a super-compact digital camera, instead of a larger 35mm, too.

And...the rubber ducky (and is that a game controller?) stays home, sorry!

actually the rubber duck isnt going. i didnt notice it was in the floor till after i packed.
the game controller is just for the flight over then it gets tossed or sold. but i will have several hours to kill, so i figure it will be time to play some games. and i am not taking as much purple as it looks like for some reason my camera color averaged the picture
