Suitcases again ... !

Our long awaited travel destination is only weeks away now. I've been doing a lot of thinking about what I NEED to pack and what I WANT to pack. Our mode of transportation is different and I no longer want to wrestle with heavy luggage. When we take road trips, we can throw everything (including the kitchen sink) in the back of the van, but this trip will be different. Size and weight of luggage has become a huge issue. 

The first item off the list of "want" to take is my computer. Only the tablet gets to travel on the plane, and I haven't been a real fan of tablets. Now I'm spending time with it, so that it is familiar to me when we're away from home. As long as I learn how to backup the pictures that I take (in case I lose my camera), the other stuff to do on the tablet will take the "second fiddle" position. I'm still trying to figure out how to post on NOTH. 

We have recently learned that our accommodations will have laundry facilities, so won't need to take half of my wardrobe with me ... just a reasonable number of 'washable' items. Do the color coordinating at home, and then don't worry about it. Other vacationers won't care what I'm wearing, and if there are food stains on the front of my tee, just zip up my jacket until I get back to the cottage!

If you don't hear from me for several days, enjoy the silence! 

Stay tuned ...

They are kind of sweat pants style. Actually look quite nice compared to sweat pants a step above. Suzan 

Thanks for the information ... I'm still a "polyester" gal ... and I can roll them up in the suitcase, and no wrinkles! Also, can be dressed 'up' or 'down', depending on the occasion. Since I only have one pair of shoes (for orthotic reasons), I almost always wear black slacks ... goes with anything!

They're made of non wrinkle, drip dry nylon and I was never too warm, in them.

  Oh dear, now I'll have to find out what parachute pants are! Are they in case of emergency? Hee Hee!
