The problem with packing is that you don't want to pack too much, and you definitely don't want to pack too little.
I am definitely dealing with this problem right now. I can pack light, don't get me wrong...I have done it before, and I can do it again. But this time...things are a little different. Normally when I go on a trip, I know that wherever I go there will be a Wal-Mart down the road in case I need anything. I don't think that backup plan is going to work this time, because as far as I know...there isn't a Wal-Mart down the road from the mountain we're staying on in Zacapa, Guatemala.
We have been given a packing list that seems longer than the U.S. Constitution, yet expected to keep our suitcase under 49 lbs.
Lots of things to keep in consideration.
Despite the fact that I am going through this major packing dilemma, I can't help but smile to think that I will be in Guatemala tomorrow. It all seems very surreal. I have heard that this trip is going to be a life changing experience, and I am fully expecting it to be just that.
Now, I am off to master the skill of packing!
