    Tomorrow we leave for the airport in buffalo for our early tuesday morning flight. I have been working on this trip since before christmas and feel I have everything in order.

    We are mostly packed. We are playing in a ball tournament this weekend so it has limited the amount of time we have tieing up lose ends. We have one more game this afternoon then it is time to get in disney mode.

    My fiance and I, and our 3 kids are going. We will be at POR for 8 nights

    What are some last minute things to think about leading into us leaving tomorrow morning??

    I have a 'to do' list for the last few days before any trip. Some of the more important things for us:
    -Call to stop newspaper
    -house key to neighbour, along with contact info, mailbox key.
    -timer for living room light
    -turn off ringer on phone
    -empty fridge of perishables
    -turn off water to washing machine
    -reprogram thermostat
    -charge phones and camera batteries. PACK CHARGERS
    -pay all bills that will be due while we're away
    -notify bank, credit card companies of vacation
    -turn off power strips for entertainment center, computers
    -US cash
    -bring extra garage door opener into house. Lock garage door
    -clean house (I hate coming home to a dirty/messy house)
    -last minute laundry/ironing
    -empty trash. Ask neighbor to put out trash/recycling
    -assemble ALL documents necessary for entire trip and place in 1 carry on.

    We usually get our mail stopped for the few weeks we're gone, have a note on our mailbox for "no Flyers' to be delivered there, get my mom or sister to swing buy a couple times in the time we're gone to check on the place, let our immediate neighbor know we'll be away and for how long so they also can keep an eye on strange behavior,

    ensure the iron/coffee pot/stove is turned off before leaving,

    and of course make sure we take all our ID and travel papers with us!

    Happy Travels, have a great time!

    Change for the tolls when you get over the border is always good.

    That's a great list. I do many of those things too.
    To add to it....
    turn the water heater to vacation
    shut off the natural gas to the BBQ
    stash away the spare car keys
