Life out of a Backpack (2023 Update)

It’s time for a five-year update to my original POST as I’m off to Thailand again! This trip is a little different though – it’s indefinite. More on that coming soon πŸ˜‰. Due to the time horizon, I’m increasing my allowed weight limit from 30lbs (14kg)Β to 50lbs (23kg), a big jump I know!

“Knowledge is a process of piling up facts; wisdom lies in their simplification.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.
