Okay. Nearly ready. Plans for today, relating to travel, are "pack". I need to add one set of clothes, plus something nice for the Hugos. (Probably just a dressier than usual top; there is a certain shrug-and-carry-on[1] freedom to living out of a bag for most of a week.)

I need to copy out my travel information, and clean out my wallet.

Chargers, toiletries, passport, candied ginger, caffeinated chocolate. Refill on Starbucks card. Travel packets of laundry soap (yes, the hotel has laundry service, but in case). E-reader.


Finalized con schedule.

Possibles: a book I am thinking of getting signed. A camera. My knitting.
[1] Not intended to be a reference to a carry-on bag, but hey.

Not that you need my suggestion, but for fanciness-when-travelling, throwing (or...gently placing) a dressy necklace/earrings in the bag poshes up an ordinary outfit. Hurrah for accessories.

Hope you have a safe flight!

No, it's a good suggestion! (I forgot to mention them separately, because I love my earrings, and they are usually one of the first things I put on.) Will definitely be bringing some shinies. :)

Thank you!

I almost managed to pack a carry-on sized bag for 3 weeks, but not quite. Mind you, even the bag I packed (24in) assumes me doing laundry or washing undies and socks in the sink once or twice.

Mine's 14.5"w × 15.5"h × 6"d, and I think I'll be okay. I am definitely doing laundry along the way, though, and may take a friend's advice about "remember you can always mail your clothes home if you're low on space, and carry your souvenirs with you".

(I have been packing skivvy rolls. I am quietly amused that I found out about these while browsing for stuff associated with one of my fandoms, and now I am using it to go to WorldCon.)
