Where do people who have furniture pack for climbing trips? Granted, my living room is small… itty bitty, some say… but my climbing gear alone takes up almost the whole floor, not even counting camping and kitchen stuff.

I kind of love that.

Other things I learned today while packing. My Leatherman does indeed have a bottle opener. It’s located on the same tool as the very sharp can opener, and, right next to the exceptionally sharp saw whose purpose seems to be to slice fingers open. All of the tools mentioned work quite well for their apparent purposes.

My plan of packing two packs — one for climbing, one for camping — may not actually work out. Apparently, I am a girl. I don’t think I’m going to achieve my minimalist packing goal this time around. Especially with the chance that we may get to stop off at Tahoe for a bit. The fact that my stuff won’t fit in two packs is due entirely to the bikini and camp towel I just have to pack in case of Tahoe.
