is one of the best things in the world. So fast and easy. Running on the flats is tolerable to acceptable. Uphill sucks.

I'm headed to Hamburg, Germany for the 31st Chaos Communications Congress, a week filled with hacking, geekery and strange German food. Thought I would make a post detailing the kit I am bringing with me since I have never done one before.
I was going to bring either my Kifaru Express or the E&E for this trip but I decided to get a new pack. The Express is way too big for the short time I'm away for and I have had issues getting it into a plane overhead locker. The E&E is just a bit too small to fit everything I want to take with me.
Enter the Goruck GR0. Plenty of room to fit what I need yet not unwieldy.
Only 2 changes of clothes for a week? Won't you smell? No. The plan is to wash the stuff I wore each day in the shower at the end of the day. Gives me 2 days for everything to dry which is easily doable. Rotate as I go. Trousers can go for a week without being washed though if they get dirty I can wash them and they will be dry in the morning. Gotta love synthetics.
Total pack weight: 10kg. Pack light, go fast.

On Christmas Day last year, I made the decision to not consume any alcoholic drinks for a year. I am pleased to say that I have managed that goal. Like I thought, it was pretty easy. Five nights of drinking a year to zero is a pretty simple goal to reach.
Another year teetotal? Challenge accepted!
