I’d whine about how much I hate packing for trips but: 1) it would be insufferably, annoyingly, spoiled-bratty of me; and 2) I don’t have time.


I will just say…. it’s challenging to find the room for all that we might need for hiking in the upper latitudes (Norway) and high altitudes (Swiss Alps). Down? Soft shells? Rain pants and parkas? Thermals? Never mind boots and poles and other standard gear. Weather reports are calling for rain and cold temps, after all. And then… room for the stuff we might need for evening dining, say, in a couple of the more sophisticated European capitals.

The bumming around stuff is easier, but still….   whine.

Okay, I gotta do this thing.
