    Okay, I have my revised packing list. It's as above, but with the following changes:

    - no gel soles for the keen person mids. The keen soles are actually more comfortable.
    - No book - I'll stick to ebooks only
    - No 2x cotton socks
    - No 2x boxer briefs
    - 1 extra exofficio underwear. I know, that's four total, but they're so light, and I don't want to sleep commando. :-)
    - Columbia sportswear zip off travel pants in place of second pair of jeans
    - No 2x cotton long-sleeve shirts
    - 2 long-sleeve polyesters
    - 2 short-sleeve polyesters, not 3.
    - Yes on the thin fleece, yes on the scottevest q-zip.
    - I dumped the power strip, travel adapters, and apple usb adapters in favor of the lenmar 4-port usb thing with its own adapters.

    So, I packed it all up - it definitely compresses down to below 8" thick now, so I'll be fine with RyanAir. Took it to the post office, and it is 17.76 pounds.

    Thanks a ton for the advice, and a half-ton for the berating. ;-) I think we're ready to go!

    Huzzah!!!!!!!!!

    I saw how you snuck in that you took it to the post office to get it weighed. I can't tell you how tickled that makes me. It really worked, huh?! Yay!!!!!!

    "Raindon". Ha Ha.

    Here in London, we seem to have had non-stop rain since about, ooh, August 2008. The Jubilee - rained off. Concerts in Hyde Park - rained off. Wimbledon - would have been rained off but for the fact they put a roof on Centre Court. Oh, and the Olympics start in less than a fortnight. What can possibly go wrong?

    Anyway, I hope the OP took the advice vis-a-vis raingear, and didn't get too soggy. And that they enjoyed themselves in what is probably the most exciting and diverse city on the planet (he says with some pride).
