    Train Travel from Detroit to Memphis

    I wanted to upload this but my tapatalk app froze up and lost all of what I wrote, which discouraged me from rewriting the whole thing. But here it goes! The Conference Trip was in November, 2014

    Here's a friend of mine's dog, trying to prevent me from packing.



    In Smart Alec


    (Seat & Sleep kit)

    Therm-a-rest Travel Cushion
    Therm-a-rest Neo Air Pillow (Everglade)
    REI Travel Blanket
    REI Cushioned Eye Mask and Earplug Set

    3-1-1 (3DCOC: Iberian)

    shampoos & conditioners
    Deodorant
    Puffy thing (don't know what's the name of it)


    In TLSS (45)

    4 under shirts
    4 t shirts
    4 underwear
    1 lounging pants

    In DLBP

    Pamphlets, Flyers, I made and of sister local organizations' which were asked to pass out at national conference.
    t shirts I was returning (the size was off)
    1 Mariner's Jersey (I always wear something Mariner's & it helps me not get nervous!)
    1 iPad mini
    My friend's dog not included. (lol) he was trying to distract me from packing by giving me his toy.

    In Travel Tray

    Electric cables for everything
    Power plug cube

    On Side Pocket of Smart Alec
    Travel Angry Birds Tooth Brush Set
    I use kids size tooth brush cuz adult size of US tooth brush is way too big for me. Also, since I'm allergic to mint, I use kids taste tooth paste.

    Inner pockets
    2 External Battery Packs


    In Side Effect

    Rabbit Netsuke Pill Case
    iPod mini (very old but still working fine)
    iPhone 4S (secondary cell)
    iPhone 5S (my primary cell)
    *not on the picture cuz I used it to take these pics
    Ear phones
    Contact Lenses case & solution
    1 Furoshiki
    1 Handkerchief
    1 atomizer
    Charmin Wet tissue paper
    Puffs Tissue paper
    Tom Bihn's Clear Organizer Wallet
    Sea to summit small stuff sack
    (I use it as my Rosary Case. I hand made my own Rosary)


    I was all set in one bag travel, but just before I left Michigan I was asked to do the exhibition table, so I had to bring in materials.

    So I had to bring a few note book sized whiteboards & one large size.
    The Idea Board Mini
    The Idea Board
    Whiteboard Reinvented: Home of the Ideaboard

    At Union Station

    The blue bag on the outside of my Smart Alec carried sandals.

    Without whiteboards, it would've been a 1 bag travel for me!

    (First went the undershirts & t shirts)


    (Then under wears)


    (The lounging pants)


    Forgot to take pic but 1 short also went in.
    (Coming down from Michigan, the temperature was comfy enough for shorts)

    I love the cable bobbins or whatever they're called?

    I have the same laundry SS in iberian. I use it to hold my wet swimsuit after the pool exercise. I have one in UV for travel. Such a brilliant design.

    Thank you. I was wondering if 45 TLSS would fit in SA okay, and it turned out it's perfect!
