Packing light for a multi-day business trip.  Via ruckingaround.

A look at the ever-popular Altoids survival tin.

A little about one of the original Packlite guys and what gear he likes for work.

3 Days with the Madden Daylite

Just took a 3 day road trip with my new Madden Equipment Daylite. Great little 22L pack, philosophically very similar to GR0/GR1 but a little different “vibe.”

Fully packed:

GR1 Italy - 1 week trip

Hi, after almost a year of studying this and other blogs on minimalism I’m finally making my first minimal travels.
This time it’s a Trieste-Naples (Italy) 1 week travel to visit the in-laws.
We needed something nice to visit relatives and go out at night with friends, something for daytime at home when the whether is too hot and something to go out daytime.
I have only the GR1 backpack, boyfriend has only GR0.
Here’s the pics of mine.

In the yellow cube:
- 3 cotton T-shirt
- 2 cotton trousers
- 1 cotton cardigan

In the green cube:
- 2 cotton T-shirt (one for bedtime, one for daytime at home)
- 1 cotton trousers for daytime at home

In the blue bag:
- 3 pairs underwear
- 1 bra
- 2 pairs of socks

In grey bag:
Toiletries (everything but shampoo, planned to use the in-laws one)

Scrubba bag to wash clothes, we use the in-laws cloths line to dry them.
Salewa sweather for the flight.
Flip flop to be used at home.
Paper tissues.

Not pictured: tablet, personal bag and travel clothes.

Things I’m proud of: good planning phase on selecting clothes that can be mixed&matched, few accessories to dress up a bit

Things to improved: I could definitely reduce items more but switching from 21 Celsius degrees to 30 Celsius degrees gave me some trouble.

Things to do next time: left the GR1 in a locker before touring the city. I’m a 1,65 cm high girl and this backpack became too hot on my back making me sweat a lot.

Thank you for all the advices shared in this blog, they truly helped me.
