I leave in five days and there’s an astonishing amount of things that need to get done first. One of those things is my least favorite in the world: packing. I’ve tried making lists before, like Jennifer does, but it somehow makes me MORE anxious.
Still, it has to get done, as does this post. So I hope you don’t mind if I multi-task.
Kentucky bag: denim shorts, Firefly shirt, pajama pants, small toiletries bag, phone charger, book, and travel journal.
Small toiletries bag: toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, hairbrush.
Chicago bag: 3 towels, large toiletries bag, 2 pairs of jeans, 3 t-shirts, 2 nice shirts, Cinderella dress, sparkly heels, 2 pairs socks, Converse, jacket, laptop, laptop charger. Hamilton ticket.
Large toiletries bag: shampoo, conditioner, hair dye, body wash, baby powder, hair straightener, hair dryer.
Secondary duffel: other shorts, other towels, 5 t-shirts, 2 nice shirts, other Converse, flip flops, sandals, 4 pairs of socks, pads.
Front seat: GPS, maps, guide books, AUX cord, first aid kit, hotel printouts, cell phone, wallet, adventuring purse.
Cooler/Food bag: sandwich stuff, Freeman’s sauce, water bottles, apples, spaghettios, granola bars.
Other: box of books/journals, emergency bookbag/kit lovingly packed by Jennifer (with medicines, sunscreen, and a first aid kit, among other things), emergency ID/cash, bag for dirty clothes, Tide, dryer sheets, oil. The Spirit of Adventure.
I hate packing because I know I can’t plan for everything. I’m sure I’ll get somewhere and realize I missed something. But then…that’s what credit cards are for, right?
Anything else you think I’ll need?
