Hood to Coast 2008: Live-Blogging the Overpacking

As it was exactly this moment a year ago, I am preparing to depart for the Hood to Coast experience and wrestling with my strong predilection for overpacking.

This year it's even more acute because the weather has been so variable of late: 100+ temperatures a week ago today, 60s and rainy in recent days. Sure, the forecasts indicate clear skies and temperatures in the 70s and 80s for daytime highs, but what do they know?

Are they sure it won't rain? Are they sure they're sure?

What's going to be the best thing to wear between legs? How cold will it be at night?

"What if" and "just in case" really overload a duffle.
