Pack light, travel far (aka: PLTF) – the idea itself seems simple enough. Rooted in the principal of taking only what you need and nothing that isn’t absolutely necessary for survival while traveling. The thought isn’t new however, as our early hunting and gathering ancestors went into the wild to acquire enough food necessary to feed their families in minimalist fashion; they took their weapon of choice and maybe some snacks (think original energy bar) to fuel multi-day, large game hunting adventures. They didn’t bring an extra pair of underwear (they wore the same homemade leaf and rope thong every day), let alone a second pair of shoes or socks. Literally, only the bare necessities to protect their behinds and bring home the goods.
