I’ve been researching packing for this trip to the KSC. I’m flying down to Florida for it. I fly occasionally, but is isn’t something I do all the time. Normally when I go to events I take a car. Of course, most of the events I attend are within reasonable driving distance to, so that isn’t a problem.
Ive been doing a bit of research, and found a wonderful site on traveling more lightly, One Bag. Or more importantly traveling with just one carry on bag. One of the ways to do that is to use a strict packing list and not take more than that list. Now I’m starting to work on a packing list for this trip. Since I’m there to tweet up, I need to take appropriate electronics and support for twitter tools. 🙂 So netbook, power cord, cell phone and charger. Camera(s) and batteries. Then I’ll need medications with prescription id, and toiletries, as well as contact solution and extra contacts. At the end I’ll worry about clothes.
I’ll need to weigh the resulting luggage. But I won’t come close to my fellow tweet up attendee, Raam Dev. He travels around the world with only one small bag! He will be the first to tell you that this style of travel is not for everyone. I don’t think I would prefer traveling quite that lightly, but he is a someone that enjoys what he’s doing. Talk about traveling lightly!
Decisions, decisions! I’m still floating about this tweetup opportunity. There’s plenty left to do for this, so I’m still working out the details. And then the timing could completely change too. So the details will be up in the air for a while. But it doesn’t matter, its going to happen! Whee!
