|Flip flops for hot weather and public showers. My camp shoes were $5 at a sports store clearance.|
|I keep several pairs of undies, sports bras, socks and a hat in a small sunflower bag. |
I also have a swimsuit and a small packable shopping bag that we use for laundry (the strawberry).
Even though I don't like to have a lot of things in the teardrop, I tend to hang on to a lot of clothes. Where we camp tends to have crazy weather, and in one day you could change your clothes two or three times to stay comfortable. However, I'm surprised how much I can fit into a space about 275 square inches.
|My outer layers consist of a Sierra Designs rainjacket and a Patagonia fleece. |
We are lucky to have a Patagonia outlet where we live.
I think the key might be in the folding, I tightly roll or fold all my items and stack them according to temperature needs. Unfortunately, even during short trips, I will find myself sitting on the teardrop bed, pulling all the clothes out, refolding them and stacking them back in again. I'm pretty bad when it comes to putting clothes back in the cupboard while camping. When rushed, I'll just toss them in and close the door really fast.
|Other warm items include a puffy vest that folds into its own bag and some long (very colorful) underwear.|
I will store a few items under my pillow. Usually a warm puffer or fleece jacket will go under my pillow, or I'll put socks or hats in the netting above the bed. Having a wide range of clothing that can be used in all situations comes in handy when traveling through various locations.
|I have a few items for sleeping including two long sleeved T-shirts and a long, fleece bottom.|
Having said that—my teardrop wardrobe won't really take me to a fancy restaurant or a ball. I actually went to the thrift store to shop for my teardrop wardrobe to keep the cost down and I don't carry any "nice" clothes for going out at night. In fact, dressing up means putting on our clean jeans and knocking the dirt off our hiking boots.
|Clothing for warm weather includes two tank tops, three T-shirts and two shorts. |
I'll sometimes sleep in the gray shorts if it's hot at night.
|I only bring one other pair of pants. I'll usually be wearing my hiking pants while traveling, |
but my comfy jeans wait for me in the cupboard. These are for "dressing up."
