Subject: Shedding items
Hello, 'Ziners:

Well, I can finally own up to packing light as well. I've travelled light this way for years and years but have never made too many public confessions about it!

Since many of my adventures include hiking &camping, looking like a Paris model is not necessary &is even silly. So I plan to take almost-worn-out shirts & shoes &abandon them along the way. I take enough nice items to wear while actually enroute or for a special occasion, but all I need usually is shorts &tshirts. I mean, who wants to hike in the rain forest in designer duds?

I'll be walking in the Orkneys in March &will use the light technique, but doubt that I will abandon my polarfleece or rainproof pants!

Walking on, Gail Norris
