Packing and Preparing … and some Procrastinating

Taking trips to Baltimore and DC, Colorado and Austin – I’ve been doing a little procrastinating. Sweet, rebellious procrastinating.

There is so much to do now that if I had a job now I’d have to quit just to get it all done in time.

Sparing the minutia, the large things I still have to do involve getting personal property insurance, procuring a large hiking bag pack (any suggestions?), transferring all my data to my new tiny netbook, setting up communications with my family and friends (handwritten address book in 2010, what?!), and wrapping up my banking and cats and medical prescriptions.

Oh, and the PC office said that if I don’t get my H1N1 shot and bring proof to staging then I’m not going – so that’s high on the priority list.

I’ll soon post a packing list along with thrilling photos of all my things.  The goal is not to pack to camp, but to pack to live. I intend to slightly underpack and purchase as much as I can there.

Ha! Let’s see how that one goes!

  1. I bought the Gregory Deva 70 and I LOVE it! A little on the pricey side, but I think it’s totally worth it. Good luck packing!

  2. So you’re leaving for Botswana!? My favorite south-African country!!!

    Stop by Brooklyn on your way out and we can go get h1n1 shots together.

    Holla!

    The one thing which could be a drawback (but I actually like) is to be sure to measure the dimensions WITH the daypack attached if you want to check the whole thing…the measurements on there are WITHOUT the daypack….that said, I’m using the daypack as my “personal item” for my carry on, so I like it ’cause it means when I’m not on the plane, I’ll reattach it and will only have to mess w/ 3 bags (yay).

    Ok sorry for that minor geek-out, LOL. See you soon!
