I seldom play but I'll give it a go today.
"Here are five questions about packing to go on a trip."
1) Some fold, some roll and some simply fling into the bag. What's your technique for packing clothes?
I roll, at least most things. If I have something fresh from the cleaners I lay it on top of everything I've rolled. The rolling works especially well when I'm only carrying a backpack for a night or two. It sometimes requires an iron at the other end but most hotels have them. My mom said to keep close from wrinkling you should fold the with tissue paper. Sometimes I do that with the ones I'm laying on top.
2) The tight regulations about carrying liquids on planes makes packing complicated. What might we find in your quart-size bag? Ever lose a liquid that was too big?
shampoo, conditioner, makeup, contact solution, and toothpaste. If I'm sure of shampoo at the other end I'll skip that. Often a bit of sunscreen and hand lotion too.
3) What's something you can't imagine leaving at home?
Contact solution and case and my itouch. Cell phone of course.
4) Do you have a bag with wheels?
Suitcases have wheels, yes. Someday I'd love a lightweight backpack with small wheels too. If I go to Europe again, I'm getting one and packing only it.
5) What's your favorite reading material for a non-driving trip (plane, train, bus, ship)?
Christian Century. It is so nice to take an issue or two and catch up on every article. Then if I'm reading a book, I'll take it along. My itouch also has some books on it, but if I have wifi or time to load a few pages, I'll use the time to catch up on blog reading. The magazine and touch weigh a lot less than a book.
I just download two books at Ooze website to read on the touch. We'll see how that goes. So far I've only read my son's book on it.
