This weekend I took my kids for a camping trip with our Indian Princess group. No matter what I did I could not keep everything under control. The strategies for managing clothing pre-sorted by day and in Ziploc bags simply did not work. Finding band-aids or toothbrushes or water bottles or even the right snack was overly complicated. Amazingly the lists are VAST.Hiking is no different. The number of pockets in a pack is going to make you less efficient. Too much or too little can define success or failure. Whatever it is there is a fine line to success.
