Details…Details…Details…I am realizing there are A LOT of details when planning a trip to California and bACK. The dilemma about packing??? What to bring…what not to bring??
Victoria never wants to be without the things she needs…I have the wisdom of age and realize you can just make do! BUT…convincing her??? I already realize is not going to happen. So PACKING and ORGANIZING will be the key to our success!
Luckily Victoria is extremely organized. Now onto the perfect packing paraphernalia…
1. We will begin with packing cubes…SHHHHH don’t tell Victoria this will be a Christmas gift!
2. Straws to pack your extra necklaces, because of course on a cross the country road trip you need more than on necklace. Not!
3. Now the obvious…
Cash, clothes, footwear, cash, medicine (including antibiotics and painkillers)
Your on vacation…why do you need painkillers there is always wine!
I continued to research ideas for what to pack and came up with this extensive list of...
Duct tape and cash (I like how these two where mentioned together:)
Mini sewing kit, make your own! (Of course throw in a needle and thread and a small pair of scissors not flying so all legal!)
Sleeping Eye Mask & Earplugs (I am assuming for when I am not driving?)
Paracord??? What is this? google tells us everything! Why would I need paracord on a driving trip?
Headlamp (I already have a phone with a flashlight but if I want to go spelunking this could come in handy…impressed I know what spelunking is…I didn’t even have to google! Now I get the reason for the paracord.)
Final Item…Emergency Kit. What to include because we already have duct tape and cash…who needs anything else for survival?
Did you notice how many times CASH was mentioned?
Comments and packing suggestions WELCOME!!!
