It’s looking like this will be an expensive quest! I’ve been doodling mind maps between classes recently, the most recent of which being my first brainstorm of costs. I plan to tweak this list as time goes on, but I would love to hear what you think! Here’s a basic outline:
- Backpack – 60 liters would be best.
- Clothes – undergarments, pants, shorts, shirts, rain jackets/pants, swimming trunks, and sunglasses
- Shoes – Boots!
- Sleeping stuff – sleeping bag, pad, and bivy sack!
- Henro essentials – More details later
- Hiking essentials – First aid kit, shovel, sunscreen, compass, water bottles
- Backpacking needs – a grill
- Camera – Possibly a FlipHD with extra SD cards
- My stuff! – Boxes and shipping (to America), Storage… or just sell it off.
- Future costs – Apartment, Taxes, Insurance
- Loans and bills – Personal loans, Student loans, and my cell phone bill!
Any recommendations?! More soon…
