It’s Go Time. What’s in the Bag?

It’s Go Time. What’s in the Bag?

After years of planning, the day’s finally here. I can’t begin to explain the adrenaline rush as I lay here in bed preparing for one last routine sleep… but I’m ready. Tomorrow (Wednesday 12/27), everything changes. And as of tomorrow, here’s everything I’ll own, lest any of you out there are still wondering why I decided to call the blog ‘One Bag Wanderer’. 
Every piece of gear you see below was intentionally and meticulously chosen with this trip in mind. Lightweight materials, breathable, odor & wrinkle-resisitent fabrics, packability, comfort, longevity, build quality, versatility – each of these variables factored into my loadout decisions. It’s not much, but it should serve me well (and remind me that you don’t need a ton of STUFF to get by).
