Forget Time And Space - Packing is the B*tch!

Fresh (almost) daily from Julie Barrett

In one episode of Quantum Leap, Gooshie (the programmer) tells Sam Beckett that, "time and space can be a bitch." I suspect he never had to pack for a long trip.

I'm one of those folks who like to travel light. I'm also a procrastinator, which means I didn't finish some items that I was supposed to ship ahead. I could have shipped the stuff for ten bucks. It'll cost me $25 to bring it on the plane if I don't pack with care.

This means getting creative, and deciding what stays behind. I'm only leaving behind one piece of gear I'd planned to take. On reflection, I don't think I'd get much use out of it. It's heavy, and I can use the weight allowance for things I really need. I've found some plastic boxes designed for food to pack items that shouldn't be crushed.

The good news is that I should have room to bring back a few items.
