Packing for Bolivia

I’ve gone on lots of trips over the years but this one was challenging. Getting my main bag down to 45 lbs was a real challenge that reminded me of backpacking the pacific crest trail in boy scouts trying to get my pack lighter an ounce at a time.  Tsimani Lodge has laundry services so I figure onlytwo pairs of everything might do the trick.  I would rather bring more flies than more clothes.   I packed three rods -an 8 wgt Helios II, a 9 wgt Winston Boron Jungle Rod and a 10wgt Helios II.  I packed three reels – a Vanquish, Nautalis and a Mako.  I packed extra lines (off the spools), , spools of leader and  light dry backpack .  My carry on has a Phantom 3 drone, a Lumix gx8, a Leica 48mm prime, a  Lumix 14-140 and a Lumix 7-14.   One Gopro 4 Black,  one gopro session,  a small 3 axis stabilizer, a mini monopod and charging equipment. Whew.! I always recommend fellow travelers to carry a lightweight backpacking fishing pole. A good backpacking fishing pole will break down or collapse into a much smaller size and fit into your hiking backpack.

One more day of work and I leave for Bolivia….

Now if you’re not packing your things to go Bolivia but rather want to pack your equipment to move it around your office, or to a new home, you might need Moving crates from phs. Trust me, they will make your life easier.
