Packing for Multiple Adventures

Packing for two months, multiple adventures and variable temperatures wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the gear! In this case, paragliding, hiking and camping gear. Oh, and let's not forget electronics and all the accompanying cords and gadgetry.

"Regular" clothes and shoes. Pile on the right is travel-day wear, the rest is to be packed. 
Hiking and camping gear
Paragliding gear
Electronics -- bag on the left is GoPro accessories (one can never have too many!), bag on the right is cords etc.
Packed and ready to go!
I was quite careful not to overpack on the clothing. I made sure everything colour coordinated with everything else and most pieces looked good enough to function as reasonably nice but also suitable for hiking/camping/paragliding. The gear is harder to cut down on but most of our stuff, at least for hiking/camping, is pretty light weight. It's possible to get lighter-weight paragliding gear but, for now, we're haven't gone that direction.
