camera + charger (with a roomy memory card)
phone + charger
1-2 book(s) + notebook, pen
i usually plan to do laundry on longer trips, since this allows us to take half the amount of clothing. last year, we stayed at a airbnb where they offered to take our laundry to a laundromat. we left it out in a bag in the morning…and there was a bag of folded, clean laundry when we returned that evening. it saved us from spending one of our days in the laundromat. this year, i think we'll be ok without doing laundry.
camping in durango, co last summer was cold! we ended up buying winter coats at the rei scratch and dent sale in los angeles and wearing them in our sleeping bags in big sur and yosemite. this year, we are going to try to be a bit more prepared. my minimalist side does not like to use up so much packing space on coats, but it is necessary! we bought a stuff sack to put our coats in…to compress them as much as possible.
i hope it all fits!!
