I'm taking a quick trip this weekend, and I'm having a little trouble picking which bags to bring, so I'd love some input.
First, the list of available bags:
* Western Flyer
* Smart Alec
* Various Stuff Sacks
* Various Yarn Stuff Sacks
* Various 3D Organizer Cubes
* Various Packing Cubes, including Backpacks and Shoulder Bag
* Travel Tray
* Several ChicoBags grocery bags
* ChicoBags sling bag
* Canvas grocery bags
Right, so now that we've established I've got way too many bags...
This is going to be an unusual packing trip for me. I'm bringing some gifts that I'll have to check, but I don't want to check on my way home. I'll also be bringing a fair amount of fresh produce that I don't want to check. My CSA delivery is just a few hours before my flight, so the plan is that I'll bring the veggies with me and we'll use them for the party this weekend.
What I'm leaning toward at the moment is packing my clothes and whatnot in the Aeronaut along with the gifts, and checking that bag, and then using something else as my carry-on for the veggies. I'd like it to be fairly contained (so not just a grocery bag) but also squishable so I can just shove it (Empty) into one end of the Aeronaut for the flight back.
I don't have a formal packing list quite yet, but I expect it to be something like this:
* Veggies (for those of you familiar with CSAs, this is a single one-week share, mostly greens)
* 2 3D cubes
* Medium knitting stuff sack with my knitting project du jour (carry on)
* Kindle (carry on)
* Surface (carry on)
* 3-4 travel dresses
* Gifts (they're a blanket and a first aid kit)
* Snacks (carry on)
Right now I'm thinking maybe I could put the veggies into a couple Chicobags and then try to cram them into the Aeronaut packing cube backpack, then do the Co-Pilot for the knitting and kindle and such.
I'd love any input or suggestions! I can do a trial-pack tonight for everything but the veggies, if that would help.
