Everything I Need For 3 Months

I spent most of today driving around picking up last minute things I need and filtering through all my clothes. Here is every single thing I'll be carrying on my back for the next three months:

  • Lonely Planet Travel guide
  • Mediatations by Marcus Aurelius
  • Being and Time by Heidegger
  • Leather Journal + Muji Pen for sketching
  • 2 Letters
  • 2 Tobacco pipes + supporting cast, I'm bringing two, because what's the point of a pipe if you can't share it?
  • Dhammapada
  • iPad
  • Sony a5000 camera
  • GoPro
  • SD card adapter for iPad
  • Headlamp
  • Day pack
  • Sunglasses
  • Headphones
  • Indestructible watch
  • Sleeping bag liner
  • Travel towel
  • 3 Shorts and 1 bathing suit
  • 3 Sleveless shirts, 2 tshirts, 1 long sleeve
  • 4 Boxers
  • 4 Pairs of socks
  • 2 button downs
  • Double edged razor, blades, aftershave

Not shown:

  • Jack Purcell converse
  • Hiking boots
  • Medicine/Melatonin
  • Chargers
  • Big backpack

iPad + Camera vs iPhone

I could do everything that my iPad and Camera do with my iPhone. However, I want a break from my phone, from the constant buzzing of notifications, from the mindless unlocking/locking of the screen. Bringing an iPad and camera will force me to be deliberate about the things I do and the pictures I take.

16 hours till departure. I can't wait.
