All this stuff fits in to 80 litres of Kriega soft luggage. I have 2 x 15 litre bags either side, a 30 litre on top and a 20 litre on top of that (this is the bag that I would rather have empty for when I am stripping off layers or buying food etc). I also have a ruck sack which I will keep fairly light.
I have drawn a map of where everything goes and taken a picture on my phone so it will make it easier to remember where everything is and how to repack it once unloaded.
So here we go

Please let me know your thoughts. Particularly if you have been here and done this. We all have our own ways but it's good to share experiences. It could save me a lot of learning time!!
So that's it. I am now working on my Visa's and this is proving a little less complicated that I originally thought so don't let the paperwork scare you if you are considering something like this yourself. These things can take time to plan but all it takes is a little self motivation and a desire to get out on the road. As time ticks away nearer to my leaving day I grow more and more excited and never in doubt!
I am no expert but please feel free to ask any questions you like if you are considering something similar.
