This short blog will be used to document how well I packed for a given trip. Title will follow the pattern above: Date, Loc, Reason, Length. Then I will score how well I did.
What did I forget? What did I bring that I didn’t use? What did I use that I loved having with me? Maybe this will lead to greater efficiency, maybe it will just be a laugh.
Alarm clock. No biggie, figure out the hotel clock and also set the iPhone alarm. Since I don’t really know how to work the hotel clock I have to sit up and turn on the light to find the snooze button. Since the iPhone is across the room, I have to GET up and go over there. OK fine, I’m awake! Maybe I’ll ditch the alarm from my packing list. Maybe I’ll make a packing list.
Didn’t Bring: Stealth entry. I didn’t bring a robe. I never bring a robe. Even a travel robe seems overkill when you are trying to pack light. But my room was cold and I didn’t want to run the noisy heater so it would have been nice to have something other than my raincoat to wear. But I don’t think I’ll get in the habit of bringing one with me.
Workout gear including very bulky running shoes. Just couldn’t get it together. But hope springs eternal so I’ll probably keep bringing the stuff. I have used them in the past, pinky swear!
My iPhone TomTom app helped us get to and from the restaurant we went to for a team dinner. Handy!
Packing Score: 80 (out of 100) Totally subjective.
Note: I am not being paid by anyone to pimp their products. I’m just sayin’ so you can gauge my credibility and just in case and companies wanted to ask. To which I would say no. Most likely.
