Everything I Own

19 November 2014

Not including: furniture (my Dad bought them), house supplies (I bought a lot of junk, but it seems to slowly gets put to use in the house), media (discovered Voice Dream and pirate eBook library too late), some clothes that fit well, and things that will be rid of soon.

Estimate: 80 things.
Goal: 50. Poop.

Buy a stereo system. It’s worth it. If not, high quality headphones. Zack’s stereo system and my stereo system at home make a much larger impression for me. Ship my stereo system to SF?

EVERYTHING THAT I OWN:
“big 3” and more:
backpack – HyperLite 3400 (contenders: Exos 58, Z Packs Arc Blast)
sleeping bag / quilt – enlightened equipment’s Revelation (tears too easily! Already have two pieces of electrical tape repairs on it), it’s also kind of made to be used with a slepeing pad, because it’s doesn’t fully wrap around the body, which makes the mummy function quite silly for people who sleep on their side.
– could try to upgrade to Convert with straps
– comes with stuff sack
tent – Tarptent Double Rainbow (carbon fiber pole, no liner)
– comes with stakes and guy lines and stuff sacks
daypack – HIKPRO 20L/6.5oz (contenders: one from z packs vs sea to summit silnylon modded with foam pads)
