He ain't heavy, he's my backpack

So Brian and I have taken the next step in trip preparations. Over the weekend we went back to REI armed with all the tips from the Round-the-word books and websites and after much consultation with staff (including the sister of my co-worker who has already left on a similar trip), we ended up with the following two backpacks. The plan is to spend the next couple months trying to see how much or how little we can fit in them and to wear them around some to make sure that they are comfortable. That way we still have a chance to change them if we need to.

Looking at them, all we can say is: we will DEFINITELY be learning how to pack light!

Okay, so evidently random folks do check this blog out. So for all you blog wanderers out there, we haven't actually left for our adventure yet. The plan is currently to start traveling around end of May/beginning of June. In the meantime, if you're looking for something to make you happy, Brian highly recommends this picture
