Aloha! I'm thrilled to be packing for our first trip to Hawaii. We'll be on the Big Island for 10 days. While I can't call this a super light packing job, I did manage to appease my inner Girl Scout while keeping it carry on only.

I'd love to cut back on my backpack contents at some point, but it's a slow process for me. Traveling with kids complicates things a bit, especially with their severe food allergies. They carry most of their own stuff, though. My biggest target for trimming down is to consider whether I could downsize my camera gear for travel, but I keep spending camera funds on Tom Bihn bags. ;-)
Thanks for letting me share my packing mania.
