Packing principles

1. Don't carry heavy stuff (e.g. tins - unless you want to and you can)

2. Waterproof everything and carry extra plastic bags. Use a pack-liner and put things in plastic bags inside the pack liner.

3. Organise your pack

- heavy vs light

OR usefulness and accessibility during the day

- pack things inside other things

4. Carry what you need to be comfortable and have fun, e.g. tea-light candles, cards, wet-wipes

5. Pack for safety

- yellow pack liner from Macpac also can be emergency shelter

- have an emergency kit

From those who have gone before:

"Pack light! Don't bring anything unnecessary."

"Be prepared, don't pack the night before"
