Packing is really hard. Packing is really really hard when you’re planning to be gone on a 4-month trip (which turned out to be 8 months), and planning on taking as little as possible, all while making sure everything fits into a carry-on bag. Oh, and not to mention having to shove a huge jumbo ziplock bag of Silly Bandz into that 22″ backpack–yeah, that made things a lot more difficult. If only I had talked to Jeff from the Eagle Creek marketing team before my trip; I could have packed much more quickly and efficiently.
