I'm not very good at packing, I often pack too heavily and almost always forget something important despite overpacking.
Hopefully this will help:
Checklist: bag day bag 3 pairs shorts 1 pair pants 3 v neck t shirts 2 tanktops 1 athletic shirt 1 collared shirt 1 hoodie 1 water resistant jacket 1 beenie 5 pairs socks 3 pair underwear (might be buying some more, then again maybe ill just abandon wearing any underwear) Running shoes flip flops Enough deet to stip my skin off
sun screen medkit including: cyprol, painkillers(perscription and over the counter), other various creams and ointments, lots of bandages, MOLESKIN, a pair of little scissors, some over-the-counter stomach chewys and other random things that seemed like a good idea.
1 travel book 1 other book sketch book watercolor set bag of pens and pencils Camera and other stuff
I am not taking a computer or an Ipod with me. The computer was pretty obvious, I just don't want to worry about it, The Ipod was a bit more of a decision. I think it'll be benificial to not have any destractions. Similarly i'll be unable to retreat to my safe little music bubble which might force me to do more things such as: draw, drink, people watch, read(which i do way to little of), meet new friends and go on small or sometimes not so small adventures. My next post is going to be after I go to the jungle in Costa Rica, hopefully I'll have some rad pictures.
On a different note, here is the first page of my new sketchbook. Since the name of my blog is "sketchdout" I figured it would be pretty weak not to have a sketch in my first post. I wanted to finish my old sketch book and get a new one before my trip, and here it is, pertty, red and shiny, well, not shiny.
