何を持っていく? 荷詰め

翻訳中
~~~~~

びっくりする位コンパクトに収まる、これから長~い間持ち歩くあなたの「家」が、バックパック。
そう思うと色々入れたくなっちゃう?!

色んな旅人がネットや本で言うように、現時点で数ヶ月旅を続けている私たちからも、アドバイスは、
「バックパックは、軽くすべし!」

実際旅行用の買い物に出かけると、「あ、これも便利?」とどんどんと持ち物リストが長くなっちゃうのは、と~ってもわかる!

でも、ちょっと待って!
あなたの旅の目的は、快適に暮らすこと?それとも、現地の文化に触れること?

世界中、色んな人が、色んな所で生活をしています。ということは、日本でわざわざ手に入れなくても、現地の人が使っている物で生活できると言うこと。勿論、「これは譲れない!」というのは我慢する必要はありませんが、なるべく身軽の方がいいですよ~。

その理由は、フットワーク軽く旅をすることができないから。
新しい町に着いて、猛暑の中で何件もホステルを回って宿を探さなきゃいけないときとか、行き先を変更してすぐに出る為に荷詰めを10分でしなきゃいけないときとか、荷物が少ないほうが断然楽!

私達が一年~一年半の旅の為に持ち歩いているのは、平均してJoeが16キロ、Hisakoが12キロです。
これでも重すぎかも?!もっともっと荷物少なく、フットワーク軽く旅をしている旅の強者にいっぱい出会いました。

取敢えず、私達が日本で用意した持ち物のリストを紹介しま~す!

バックパック、バッグ

item qty who comment
karimor cougar 1 h Hisako’s 45-55L backpack
fanny pack 1 h 小型で手早く持ち物に手が届く為、とっても便利。ハイキングは勿論、体に近く携帯できる為、セキュリティに気を配る街中でも便利。
shoulder bag 1 h little vulnerable to bag slashing, but has lots of pockets and works great for Hisako
eco-bag 1 share small, foldable bag for shopping
kelty 1 j Joe’s 90L backpack
day pack 1 j has a waist strap as well. been lovin’ the waist strap for the extra support when we stuff the bag full of heavy things.
rain covers 2 j&h rarely, to never use these. wish we had some backpack covers that we could wrap around and lock for the bus rides.

We decided to pack fairly light for our trip… although you might not believe that by looking at the extensive list below… and the 90L + 50L bag combination is working out really well for us. The 90L bag tends to come in around 15 to 16kg when we check in at the airport. Going over that can cause you extra headaches.

Clothes

shirts 4 j&h light cotton shirts work the best
long sleeve shirts 3 j&h never use one of the shirts, 2 would be suffiecient
thermal shirt 1 j&h absolute necessity for hikes and cold nights
pants 2+1 pairs j&h bought one more pair in Peru. cargo is ideal, jeans are heavy and don’t dry fast
shorts 1 j&h one’s all I’ve needed
swimming trunks / suit 1 j&h quick dry is good
fleece 1 j&h use all the time, get a good one
hoodie 1 j&h use all the time, get a good one
socks 4 pairs j&h one pair of thick hiking socks
boxers / underwear 4 j&h just average joe boxers & briefs
cap 1 j&h use it more than sunglasses, very handy when raining
cold weather hat 1 j&h should have gotten one that covers my ears completely
rain jacket 1 j&h rarely used
towel 1 j&h small, quick dry towel
packing bag 2 j used to throw all my clothes into, one for tops and other other for bottoms
furoshiki 1 h japanese patterned clothe to wrap clothes up in
liner 1 j&h anti-insect liner that’s a blessing in poor hostels
gloves 1 pair j&h rarely used
flip flops 1 pair j&h great for the showers, beach, walking around the hostel.
sandals 1 pair h been useful for hiking and giving the shoes a breather.
hiking shoes 2 pair j&h the solomons with the kevlar drawstring are amazing. easy one, easy off.
alpaca leg warmer 1 h bought in Bolivia and great for cold bus rides.

Clothes take up a lot of weight and space in your backpack. We recommend going with as little as possible, but that does mean you have to do your laundry more frequently.

Electronics

acer netbook 1 share nearly all travelers have one of these netbooks now. WiFi in South America is everywhere.
rechargeable batteries 6 j the eneloop batteries get me 200 to 300 shots.
battery charger 1 j panasonic model, but works with the Sanyo batteries.
canon battery charger 1 h for the Canon IXY
iPod / iPod Touch 1 share iPod Touch has been indispensable for reference and entertainment.
a/v cable 1 j Never used. (yet)

cell phone 2 j&h GSM enabled phones, but Skype has been our phone of choice.
cell phone adapter 1 share when we decide to charge occasionally.

The netbook and iPod touch have been our most indispensable items on the trip so far. The netbook allows us to research things as we go along and stay in touch with home. The touch has given us books, dictionaries, and games all in the palm of our hand. The touch is also small enough that you can fit it in your pocket without looking like you are carrying anything expensive around.

Medical Gear

bandaids 10 share range of sizes
ib profen 1 bottle share general aches and pains

insect coil 1 pack share worth their weight in cold in some parts of the world.

Definitely good to have the IB profen or whatever pain killers you can bring along. Never know what’s going to hit you. Altitude and motion sickness pills can also make some otherwise terrible journeys very enjoyable.

Of all the things on the list, these items take the longest to get in order and can be among the most expensive. New passports, vaccinations, etc are very pricey. Make copies of everything and leave one copy with a loved one or friend back in your home country before departing.

Eating & Cooking

pots and pans 1 share small cooking set that we only used in Patagonia so far.
mugs 2 j&h not pictured. making sure that the lids seal well and that the handle connects with the cup at both ends.
wolfskin water bottles 2 j&h handy at times, but we buy bottled water all the time and rarely find ourselves using them.
cutlery set 2 j&h ingenious fork, spoon, chopstick set from Japan
pocket knife 1 share make sure you have a knife, corkscrew, can opener, and bottle opener.
percolator 1 share if you don’t like instant coffee, then this will be a godsend.

Most of this stuff has been fairly useless to us on the trip so far, but if we were camping more it wouldn’t be. Depends a lot on your mode of travel. If you are going to be staying in hostel primarily, keep in mind that they usually have all the cutlery and pans you’ll ever need.

Security

cables 2 share wrap these through the loops in your backpack to lock it down.
locks 6 j&h various sizes. small ones work well with zippers and some hostel lockers. the retractable locks are great for the backpacks.

Great idea to invest in good locks. They’ll get battered and beaten on the road.


Books & Games

book 3 j&h some light reading for the road
journal 2 j&h moleskins.
small notebook 1 j for keeping track of expense, fits in my pocket.
playing cards 1 pack share great when waiting for buses, etc.
footprint – south american handbook 1 share planning on picking up others as we go along. might recommend the Lonely Planet instead though.
hacky sack 1 share passing the time


Odds & Ends

sunglasses 2 j&h get them dark and strong, sounds like coffee
clothes line & pins 1 share handy for drying clothes in odd places and the Uyuni salt flats
light climbing rope 1 share always useful when camping and hanging clothes.
vacuum bags 3 h helps compress your clothes down to manageable size and keeps things somewhat waterproof.
liner 2 j&h for those not-so-clean hostel beds
plastic bags 6 share always useful, especially if you start cooking
replacement parts for shoes 2 share the downside of the kevlar solomons. not easy to find new laces.

super glue 1 share great for small stuff that breaks
scissors 1 share handy
small flashlight 2 j&h clip it to you day pack and always have a light source
‘S’ hooks 4 share varying sizes and strengthes

eye masks 2 j&h for bright dorm rooms and bus rides.
umbrella 1 share staying dry is always the name of the game
folding hanger 1 share has clothes pins built in and comes in handy at times.

The rope and sleeping bag liner have been great purchases. Some of the other things in this list have been used only once or twice. Try to keep the amount of extras that you bring on the trip to a minimum.

h2. Cats

There were no packing of cats during the making of this page, despite Riku-chan’s numerous attempts to be included in the medical supplies and as a security measure.
