The parallels between backpacking and relationships are innumerable, if not completely contrived for the sake of this introduction. For instance, take Paul Simon and me.

We’ve never been in a relationship, but he thinks there are 50 ways to leave your lover, and I think there are 50 ways to pack your backpack. Crazy. I know, right?

However, despite the many and varied options for each, most “options” on both sides of that fence are prone to leave you miserable in the long run.

So, all of this is a really long way of saying we’ve got a video to share on the right way to pack a backpack. As for the love thing–well, you’re on your own there.
