Next Stop: Pacific Northwest

MountainsI’m currently sitting on my floor staring at 2 bags. The first bag for a weekend away in Whistler, the second for a 14 day roadtrip through the Pacific Northwest. Washington, Oregon & California… we’re coming for you! Packing. It’s a pain in the ass. It’s tough to find that balance between not packing enough and overpacking. The last time we went camping, I ended up with just a little bit extra. I had a few layers that I didn’t need and realized that I was totally ok with just wearing a few of my wool pieces over and over again. :) This time is a little different though, we’re going for much longer and I have no idea what the weather is going to do. I would assume the coast will be cool, inland will be warm and Whistler will be hot summer temps, but who knows?

One thing I know for sure is that I’m bringing my favourites with me. Whether we’re going camping, hiking or adventuring, these bad boys are my musts:

If you’re similar to me {ie. always cold} and headed out on a summer camping trip, remember the following:

  • It is always cold in the morning. Remember to bring a hoodie, tights and socks into your tent with you before bed.
  • Layers are the way to go. Tanks, long sleeves and a hoodie {or two!} are musts!
  • Merino wool is amazing. It manages stink, warmth and is a total lifesaver when on the road. Invest in it.
  • Rock your socks in sandals. Ignore the fashion police, put on a pair of wool socks and sandals, and enjoy your campfire.

Now to get back to packing…! Happy adventuring! xo

PS – Travel laundry detergent is a must for longer trips. When all your panties are dirty, you will be grateful that you have it. #RealTalk
