Charged up my US mobile and sitting here entering contact numbers in. I've been to the shops this morning to see if I could get a few things....and Alison....we might have to leave the Lamingtons. I had a look at them and they just didn't look that good. The Tim Tams will just have to do...and I wonder what Club33 might think if we did the Tim Tam slurp with our coffees there....

Packing is going okay. I've sorted out DS and my clothes and DH has a pile as well. We got the suitcases down from the attic last night and I'm going to do a pack this afternoon. My pile looks shockingly modest...even by my usual standards. I might have to start a list like Alison suggested and cross check if I have the right amount. Thing is...I'm planning on doing a wash in Silicon Valley on Sunday; so I might have calculated correctly in the first pass. Dang!

My pile looks like this:
  1. 2 long pants (one is a pair of jeans)
  2. 1 shorts
  3. 2 long sleeve tops
  4. 3 short sleeve tops
  5. 1 wool cardigan, long sleeve
  6. 1 short sleeve cotton cardigan
  7. Sock, undies

For wearing on the plane:
  1. 1 3/4 sleeve top
  2. 1 tracksuit bottom
  3. 1 tracksuit top (extra layering)
  4. Long woolen coat
  5. Pashmina (extra layering)
  6. Sketcher shoes

I'm not taking extra shoes. I figure that I probably will end up buying a pair of shoes and my sketchers would suffice...

Thoughts? Comments?

Trackie dacks on the flight? hmmm.
I know you've flown enough to know what you like but I just couldn't contemplate that. I'm usually jeans or lightweight trousers.
The coat and jumper I assume are to have for the other end. I like the idea of a Pashmina...thanks for that

No extra shoes I reckon makes sense. I did a 6 week holiday with one pair.
But lightweight thongs or sandals are always handy.

Because you are going to the US I think the rest is about right.
I'd likely chuck in an extra short sleeve as they are my bottom layer but they are the simplest to get an extra of. And if you're washing that's all good.

As for the Tim Tam slurp...god I'd love to see you do that in Club 33

Yes I know. Wearing a tracksuit on a plane can be an corny as Creamed Canned Corn. But....The tracksuit I have is an up-market lightweight one and is very comfortable to wear. The pants look like nice fitting black pants; rather than daggy pants. I knew it was travel-worthy because when I started to wear it on the flights, all these women in the Airline lounges used to walk up to me and ask me where I got my TS from.

The Pashmina is great. It doubles as an extra pillow or blanket; depending on how I feel and what I need.

Funny - you read my mind. I'd just gone through my pile and added one extra T-shirt and am now thinking about a pair of sandals. Not sure about the sandals...as I doubt I'd be using it in NorCal.

I'm not sure if I'll have a chance to post (or remember to) before you leave, so travel safe and have a good time!

Ok since Imzadi is in on it too, I'll launch a full on attack, but I think even with you leaving, it's between you and me, unless Kimmar joins in, then we're history! I have all my DVC groups who I can quiz on if they've seen it in the store?

It isn't a fashion thing
It's a overheating thing for me. I try and avoid fleece on my legs.
But your description sounds good if they are lightweight.

I don't want to read you mind!!!

The sandals are mainly for traipsing around inside. Going to a pool. Grabbing something from the car. Just something you have as an extra footwear.
That's why I just bring lightweight ones.

Thanks all. We leave today and I'm completing this quick post before the mad dash of the day.
Departure day is always bittersweet as it means that the holiday is about to commence. But it also means that it is time to stop all the planning and scheming!

I may not be posting to this TR during the next 10 days. Yes I will be in Silicon Valley ..... But the hotel we are staying at has the slowest Internet ever! Makes you wonder HOW it was ever developed from this neck of the woods!

Happy dis-sing all. See you soon!

Seeing as I have no idea what time (or day) it actually is there - in case you haven't left yet...have a great trip!

Princess, sorry I didn't get a chance to bid you a safe trip and also sorry we didn't get a chance to meet up. We did end up going to Santa Monica but there was so many of us I decided to keep it simple. We'll just to make our meet ups locally...

Safely home again today....not much sleep on the plane, 3 loads of washing later and dried (thanks to a 105 F day in Melbourne) I'm just about ready for bed!

I'll try and get this TR started before too long.

That's okay. We kept it simple too...I sent a text message on the Friday morning (not sure if you got it) saying that we were pushing out of LA earlier than planned to avoid the Santa Barbara traffic. Hope your cruise was a good one; which I will no doubt find out about in your TR.

Welcome home! Looking forward to hearing about your trip, especially lunch at Club 33 and all other "food porn"!

I think we all got our washing done today!

Well 105 degrees that will drain you. But I cant wait for all the pics. I was so glad to meet you and your lovely family. Yeah you will get your TR done before you know who.
