    Thoughts on no tech whatsoever, not even a phone for my multi month backpacking trip thru S America? I don't think I need one because this trip is going to be all about being present and no photos or videos or social media. Plus, most hostels have computers. I can keep in touch with people by writing down their numbers or social media handles. I wonder if it could present an issue with getting from the airport to hostel.

    BETTER EX-LAX SUGGESTION:
    TRY A STOOL SOFTENER LIKE DUKALAX. THESE KEEP YOUR POOPS SOFT AND FLOWY IN YOUR BODY. EW. THAT WAY IT ELIMINATES CONSTIPATION AND ALSO THICKENS UP DIARRHEA FOR A BETTER POOP SESH.
    PLUS IS NOTHING THAT MAKES YOU RUN TO THE TOILET. IT JUST MAKES UR REGULAR MOVEMENTS.

    For minimal a knidle and phone with a decent camera is a good idea like a s7 onwards. dont bother with a point and shoot camera as its a pain to have and is bulky unless your really into photos. A pasport holder is stupid and bulky gopro is really not needed and forget noise cancelling bulky headphones a set of skullcandy smokin buds 2 block alot of noise and are tiny and dont scream rob me plus beats are junk. a journal while nice is bulky compared to a phone app

    Great video! I actually do almost all of these already. Here are a few things I was surprised by: 100 dollar bills, cologne and pills. First, the Benjamins…

    have you ever had a problem with having a bank accepting the bill? In South America, I've had serious challenges with them. Maybe I've had bad luck, but the people/banks there don't have a way to test it, and there are apparently a lot of counterfeits.

    I was so shocked when I heard the word "cologne"! I always want to pack some, but I ultimately decide it's not worth the risk of having that expensive liquid confiscated or the bottle breaking. I'm also, too, lazy to use a dropper to put it into a smaller container. I L.U.V the idea of solid cologne! Very cool.

    For pills, I've been using HumanGear "GoTubb": http://www.humangear.com/gear/gotubb
    I love it, because it's a more packing friendly shape, and it's surprisingly secure, yet it's easy to open. Since I pack a variety of vitamins of liquid, powder, disolvable, etc types of pills, I put a piece of cotton and a PillowPak to absorb any of the moisture that might damage the pills. It's a silly and low cost item, but it's seriously been a great change for me. Definitely check it out. The Medium 5.3 cu in. size has been perfect for me. I recently put 18 days worth of a variety of medications and vitamins with plenty of room.

    I totally understand the expensive products! You guys can also bring a sunglasses case to protect your glasses, and you may also use it to keep something like money or small accessory that you forgot to leave at home. very good storage not just for sunglasses but for more other things.

    A minimalist/3-1-1 "hack" is to make toothpaste dots. Put down a pea-sized dab of toothpaste and let it dry. After that you can put them in a snack sized ziplock and it will not count as a liquid. When you're ready, wet your brush wet the dot, put it on your brush get down to business.

    If you like painting/sketching, take a few pieces of good paper, cut them in half, fold them again depending on the size you want, then either stitch or staple them together with a piece of Manila folder as a cover. The flat style of toothbrush travel container will hold six pencils, or grab a water brush and either a travel size watercolor palette or make one using tubed watercolor paint. Take a piece of that good paper, fold it like a greeting card then on the inside put dots of paint spaced out (just like the toothpaste) and let it dry. When It's completely dry put it inside the book you made and you're off.

    You mention Google Maps but if you’re travelling in a country whose language you don’t speak fluently, Google Translate is a godsend. You can download language packs to use offline and call it up anytime for quick translations. I always like Duolingoing a language for a few weeks or months before departure too, but obviously that’s a lot more work and only gets you so far.

    More so than specific brands, the most general thing about clothing is just that cotton kind of sucks while travelling. Polyester mixes and wool dry in a fraction of the time, which matters if you get caught in the rain, land in a puddle, or need to dry the clothes after washing them in a bathtub, as ya do.

    Hey gents, you forgot to mention the cellphone should be SIM UNLOCKED. For phones nowadays that means you can just purchase a sim card in the destination country and avoid the roaming charges and have cellphone service for dirt cheap. I had a 1 month plan in Australia for $10 last time and could use it because my phone is unlocked. Saved a ton of money there that way.
