So I did the first-round packing thing a few days ago. And then, after staring at the stash of wearables for a few days, promptly removed about half of said items. We'll see what I wind up with.
The goal was to do a carry-on only, with one "small personal item". However, anyone who knows me well, knows that when I travel that "small personal item" is my favorite digital SLR camera. Small? Yes, by airline carry-on terms. Small to shlep around everywhere I go? Hardly. But I plan to leave my extra lenses at home.
Even though I have to bring work clothes AND casual clothes, that little device might make me have to check my bag into the abyss and subject them...once again...to the unknown baggage claim land. Wish me luck.
