As I mentioned last week we are back on the road, for a little bit at least. We had to pack up our stuff and then pack it into the truck. So this post is really for Josh….. I hate to admit it but I over pack! There are two good reasons for this, when you know there is a whole semi-tractor’s worth of room for stuff you don’t think, will I really need this. Also we always go out for a week and it turns into three. So now I over pack now. I hate being somewhere and not having the right outfit or having to buy something I don’t really like. Those emergency purchases usually end up at Goodwill sooner than later.
Not only do I over pack but I have the world’s largest suitcase. It is nicknamed “The Steamer Trunk” and rarely leaves the truck. Due in part to the fact that it is so heavy; getting it in and out is a very difficult task. Trying to lift it above your head to put back into the trucks loft is NOT fun. Since I’m not a typical traveler I don’t have to follow conventional rules. I pack for more than two weeks and don’t apologize. I also have some formal clothing with us; we never know what is going to come up. There is nothing worse than trying to find a dressy dress in a hurry. Add yes I do need all of those shoes.
Josh’s normal sizes suitcase next to the steamer trunk. I can fit comfortably inside of mine when it’s empty.

and where’s Miss Pippi’s suitcase? 😉
Anita- she does have her own bag, full of toys, food and other supplies. It goes everywhere she goes.
We admire you for being able to pack ONLY that much.
