    I'd bring more tees, another pair of shorts and a good amount of underwear and socks (preferably ankle socks for shorts, if that's your thing). You'll sweat a lot and it'll be nice to be able to change at night without having to do laundry 3 days later. One long sleeved white linen shirt could also be god if you have to dress up somewhat. Milsurp jacket i good if it's light and it's not 30C degrees here. You def need two shoes. Those are fine.

    It also depends where you're going. Being in the bush vs a city requires different clothes.

    white v-neck tee or u-neck + black jeans + white sneakers or black boots. You know how it's done dude, basically dress like how you did when we met and swap the leather for a jacket, no need to overthink blazers.

    I try to have enough undies+tees for a week without needing to wash anything. As for the rest, up to you. I don't backpack but I travel extensively (in Marrakesh right now).

    I always pack enough socks, tee's and undies for up to a week depending how long I'm gone.

    I would take a couple more pants and shirts, you easily pack enough clothes for a full week in a backpack/duffel pack.

    Bring a waterproof/rain coat.

    You could be getting in WAY over your head, lol...

    It depends on exactly what you will be doing, but in general backpacking requires specialized gear, clothing, cooking skills, etc.

    I'd suggest doing some research, good luck!

    • It used to be possible to be special. As long as you were different from the people around you, you were safe. But the Internet and globalization fucked this up for everyone.

    You’re so special nobody knows what you’re talking about.

    • The details that distinguish you are so small that nobody can tell you’re actually different.


    • When the fringes get more and more crowded, Mass Indie turns toward the middle. Having mastered difference, the truly cool attempt to master sameness.

    "Backpacking" can refer to either camping where you carry all your cooking gear, food, clothes, tent, sleeping bag, and all in your backpack, or a type of low-budget traveling where you stay in hostels and carry all your clothes in a backpack (e.g., "backpacking across Europe"). The latter, which is most likely what mikey is doing, doesn't require any specialized gear, clothing, or cooking skills.

    if you already have the postmans i'd suggest returning the docs. the postman has a nicer shape and seems to have higher quality leather as well, i can't really think of a single reason for owning both. i went with the docs because they're about $135 cheaper and it was an "experiment" [​IMG]

    the docs have a sole more suited for bad weather for me the postmans are nice but i don't see how i will not be walking very cautiously when it starts to snow with them. plus i like to mix it up some times. can't be wearing aldens every day.
