So you are looking at a packing puzzle. All the stuff you have purchased or want to take is staged on the floor around your backpack and you are wondering how it is all going to fit in there.
Packing a backpack is more of a dark art than a science, and sometimes it takes several passes before you get it right.
Do not assume that the first time you pack is the correct way. Only experience will tell.
Don’t wait until the night before to start packing — and don’t add last-minute items, those are usually the things that you don’t need!
“Even the elephant carries but a small trunk on his journeys.” – Henry David Thoreau
