2 weeks to my birthday if I don't get frostbite

semi-overcast -23 °C

I have seven weeks to go before I hop on a plane. I have my; longjohns on, sweater, heavy coat, touque, gloves, boots, and I'm still freezing!
I apparently have a weight restriction for a sketchy flight in Viet Nam 30 pounds or 13 kg. I weighed my suitcase and it was ten pounds. Eight stores later I bought a 60 litre dry bag that weighs 1 pound and paid $50 I was looking at fancy napsacks weighing two pounds and they cost $300. I'd rather be cheap than high tek.
