I remember when I first went camping. I was fairly young and my mother helped me pack. Needless to say, I was the kid with the biggest backpack in our group, I never got to wear all the clothes my mother had packed for me, and my backpack was so heavy I almost fell on my back. It was a traumatic experience, believe me, but it taught me over-packing wasn't something a smart girl should practice. Not even for fun; because it's not!
