Rio Grande Semester (A) instructor, Maddie, recently made this short instructional video about how to pack a backpack for a Dragons semester. Maddie has covered literally thousands of miles on foot as a thru-hiker, so her packing tips are definitely well trail and camp tested!
Please note that you should still follow the packing list specific to your RGS (B) course itinerary and the suggestions provided by your instructors Colleen, Atieno, and Jesse. This video, however, is a helpful example of how to fit nearly everything you need into a 55 liter backpack. Happy packing!
