Basically. Something like that. In that vicinity. I’ll probably take more normal-person clothes than this. If I’m going to backpack the Sierras, I’ll also need my sleeping pad. Probably also take my iPad, so with the legal pad I should be pretty well covered on pads.

Mostly I’m just looking forward to being able to say that I live in my truck again.
