Packing List Part 1

Yes, it's everybody's favorite time, time where I divulge the intrictate secrets of my packing list! Yes, feel free to skip this entry, but I like having a place where I can reference what I took on previous trips and decide what to take on the next trip. This one will be a bit different though than previous trips in that, it's a more active vacation (biking and hiking) in the US (read that as more casual) plus we're driving (read that as we can haul more stuff), so it could be interesting ... or not.

Other Thinks (2)

Kim - apparently you have NOT been following the endless threads 'how to live for 5 weeks on the contents of a carry on suitcase' on slowtravel! LOL I don't feel so bad then about all the stuff we brought to Maine (most of which we used!)

Kim:

You know Jerry, if you leave out the hiking and biking gear, all my clothes would have fit in a small duffel, as is they're in my large duffel with all my books and some room to spare.

The really big question is whether we'll be able to fit everything into my car's tiny trunk (and backseat); if not, we'll end up in Chris's wagon, which will stink for him b/c it's a stick and I don't know how to drive a stick, so he'll be my chauffeur all week.

Post a Think

(If you haven't left a think here before, you may need to be approved by the site owner before your think will appear. Until then, it won't appear on the entry. Thanks for waiting.)
