I'm going to visit my parents in California for a long weekend (Wed-Monday morning) and will be travelling with my Tri Star and Night flight. This trip is pretty mellow because mainly I just stay with my folks and entertain myself. No really going out or visiting other people as they are elderly and don't go out and really just want my company and for me to do stuff around the house for them. A few of you asked me to post how my packing list was different from my last trip two weeks ago, so here it is: my Tristar is mostly configured the same as it was last time with a few changes necessitated by the Night Flight.
In Tri Star:
In back compartment packing cube:
2 pair of shorts
1 pair of capris
T shirt that is a gift for my dad
Little swift, flattened under packing cube
In middle compartment:
Travel tray with chargers
Travel hair dryer and travel hair iron
Small bag with first aid kit, Hair ties, vitamins, etc.
In front compartment:
1 pair Birkenstocks in eagle creek shoe cube
1 flat folder holding flight info, some knitting patterns, etc (this would usually go in a carry on but it doesn't fit in the Nightflight)
iPad will go in largest front pocket plus a platypus water bottle to be filled once I get through security.
I will wear a pair of linen pants, t shirt, fleece hoodie and sneakers.
Now for a Night Flight
Side effect with purse things
bob the travelling beaver
1 knitting pattern (folded)
1 sock project
1 knitted top project
1 bag holding extra skeins of yarn for sweater project
1 double organizer pouch with needlepoint things
Jewelry in q kit
1 packing cube filled with emergency gluten free foods
1 book for plane (I have to read an actual book on the plane. I get queasy reading a kindle-- I don't know why. I use the kindle for when I am on the ground.)
2 cross stitch projects
Here it is all crammed in
It just barely fits. And it is heavy. Like a brick with handles. I will report back and tell you how it wears in the airport.
Here's the whole set up. With Sharky who has not yet been smashed into the Tri star.
I'll let you know how it goes. I have to change planes at DFW, so that usually entails a lot of walking or riding that monorail thing. I'm hoping this is a comfy configuration.
