Packing list


This is a general packing list. It will vary depending on your gear and how light you want to pack. It is possible to pack much lighter. I also pack an additional 50 pound bag full of medical and school supplies. Before the trip is over, I donate the supplies and fill the suitcase with souvenirs and gifts to bring home. My general luggage is also lighter on the way home as I leave most of my clothes and personal supplies with the clinic in Karatu. It makes me feel good to contribute in any way I can.
