LauraA, is there a bowing icon? That's some packing list. I do pretty well but you've obviously nailed it. I LOVE that scarf. Great, another thing on my gotta have list. I love my Brain Bag. It's always comfortable no matter how much stuff I cram in it. I really really wish I could speak to the Tri-Star. A steel/ultraviolet one tops my "gotta have" list. Like TavaPeak I would LOVE to see pictures of what you're packing. I'll take any opportunity to improve what I'm doing.
