Trying to trial pack today. Our trip out and back we can have 30kgs the internal flights in Australia only allow us 23kgs. Trying to pack for a 3 3/4 month trip where it will be hot to cold and wet is a royal pain in the bum. Looks like we will be doing lots of washing. We then have to pack our carry on Bergans. lucky for us I am allowed a lap top bag as well and Alex is allowed a big handbag. Camera, paperwork, laptop, iPad, charging cables and everything else. The bad news is that I cannot fit in my fly fishing gear so I’ll have to buy some in New Zealand. But, it is all made better because Alex nipped up the shop for a bottle of NZ Marlborough plonk. Round 2 tomorrow.
