Preparing for My Peruvian Adventure Volunteering in the Amazon

I start packing with my rubber boots on the bottom of the suitcase. Words can’t express the excitement welling up in me. : )



Had to take a photo break from packing to get a pic with my Aggie hat representing UC Davis. I like to roll my clothes in an attempt to save space.


All done. Not so bad, adventure time.

Well I thought I was done packing, but my mom thought otherwise.  And how right she was!  I was skeptical that I would be able to fit all of this extra stuff in my bags (challenge accepted) but I managed to get it done.  I had to get a Camelbak backpack to bring with me on various project so I wouldn’t have to worry about a water bottle; I also picked up a flint fire starter, a compass, pocket knife multi-tool, and a mosquito net along with various other things.  Now I am truly done packing and anxiously awaiting my flight. : )
