90 days
« on: May 18, 2011, 05:47:55 AM »
Glad we got all the logistics resolved and all that's left is the countdown. 

That gives me 80 more days to ask you all annoying questions.  I'll try to find answers first, but I am sure I won't understand some things.  My first problem is coming to terms with flying.  I've discovered it's not the flying I'm afraid of, it's the damn wardrobe issue.  It's times like these that I realize I'm not the most masculine.

I guess that's why I always preferred going by car.  I could take the 3 piece luggage (completely full), my portable shoe box, overnight bag, recreation bag (with munchies) and still have room for any extras.  Then we'd return from our 3 day weekend and I pretty much wore everything.  Now I have to figure out how to pack almost an entire week in ONE suitcase?  I'm not joking here....does everyone manage to fit everything in one case and still have an adequate wardrobe?  How many pairs of shoes and what style? 

Bill and I used to argue about me not being spontaneous.  I'm thinking he was probably right.  But, I love being spontaneous as long as I have time to plan it.

6 Shirts
6 Tee's
6 singlets
2 pairs of Jeans
4 pairs of shorts
1 pair of dress pants.
2 pairs of trainers/walkers
1 pair of dress shoes
6/12 pairs of socks
6/12 pairs of Jocks

Socks and Jocks depending on how many time's a day you change, all of these will fit into a medium sized case.

Pack your case now, leave it under the bed and don't take it out until you are ready to leave the house... ;)

Remember not to wear your metal cock ring to the airport.  Also, large dildos in your check on luggage cause amusement by TSA officials. Been there, done that.

I hate to check my luggage so I will have to cram quite a bit into the small carry on bag that I use.  I hope we dont need a formal outfit while there.  If so, I can just fed-ex my 3 piece burlap suit, cane, and tophat to the hotel in advance.

How small? Or are you one of those that somehow manages to get a fullsize suitcase onto the plane and then tries to stuff it overhead and then complain that the bins are too small. Roflmao.

I was going to ask the same question!  I'm wondering if he is "that guy" who is try to stuff the obviously too large carry-on into the overhead bin.  :D

Its just a standard size zip up bag but I can stuff a lot into it.  Those overhead bins are a bit small but as you know that goes with the whole flying experience (so are the seats).  I plan to take a pair of jeans, shorts, t-shirts, and a sweatshirt or two.

Perhaps we should have a "best dressed" award for AMG 2011 in Seattle.  Knowing Basquo's personal flair, I'd put my money on him.

Wolfter, I used to be a 2 suitcase kinda girl, then the fees started and I have learned to reduce.  I pack a suitcase with everything I think i want to take.  When finish,  start over and leave half out.  repeat as needed until you get down to one bag or a carry on.  Last summer I took a 10 day trip to hawaii with a carry on and a back pack.  you'll do fine

Wolfie-
Seriously? It's not hard to do. Just remember, you're not going to AMG for anything other than to have a good time with friends. Why on earth would need to worry about how many pairs/styles of shoes? Bring one set of clothes/shoes for dress occasions, and all the rest can be relaxed stuff. No-one will really care about what you wear, just as long as you are there. Just relax, and remember to ENJOY YOUR TRIP, whic you won't be able to do if you stress over trivial things ;)
I learned to pack light for long trips due to the fact that I spent a number of years touring the country by motorcycle. You have to lean to pack light when you have such limited space to put things. I will be coming

Don't forget everyone: we can have our laundry done by the hotel for a small fee! So if you can't fit a full weeks worth of clothes into a carry-on but don't want to pay to check a bag, only bring a few days and have them washed mid-week! They even have dry-cleaning for those queens with fancy tastes in clothing!

(I read the hotel's webpage)

I didn't realize how small my largest suitcase is compared to my sister's.  I should be ok if I borrow hers plus she said it's always best to plan on buying a new outfit or two.  DUH....should have known that one.

Next conern, do you guys carry on your medication or check it?  What about the weekly pill containers?  Do they have to be in the original bottle?  Christ, if I have to carry the actual bottles of all of mine, there goes the carry on.

Yep Jan!~

leatherman- I'm pretty sure the TSA requires all meds be in their original prescription containers! Pill boxes don't qualify! Check the TSA's website to be sure!

It could be because I'm flying in from outside the States but I have always been told to carry them in the origial bottles, it could be different for you of course, but I've never had any problems.

I always carry my meds wtih me -- on the plane.  Not only could your checked luggage go to the other side of the world, ---- say, New Zealand or someplace as remote......  but you never know the conditions they will be in -- hot/cold, humidity, etc....

As for how to carry them - the TSA will say they should be in their original containers, but I usually keep my weekly pill box filled and take any additional in the bottles.  I've never had a question, and yes, I've had my ziplock bag full of meds removed and looked at by the TSA.  They never even opened the bag, never mind going into the pill box.

same thing here, and that's been flying within the US, between OH and NC since 1995, and even after the heightened security after 9/11.

I do remember being asked about my meds once sometime in 2001 I think, but I used to take 28 pills a day and it took two 4-compartment-a-day weekly pill containers to hold everything for just a week's visit home. ::) I just explained how amazing it was that even though it took all those pills, all those pills kept me dying from AIDS and let me feel confident enough to fly home without thinking it would be the last time I was going to see my mom. ;)

Check the TSA's website to be sure!

A customs agent asked me once if I really had to take all those pills and I said yes ... he said you poor thing and shoved them back in my bag . That was the only comment about my huge pharmaceutical stash I ever got .    

I am wondering about taking my insulin quick pens as carry on though .

Some idiot in the Dominican Republic asked me what all the pills were for back in the late 90's and I looked at him and said really loudly "I HAVE AIDS!"  Then he left me alone.

When I was on fuzeon and flew on a plane my doctors office had a form letter to the TSA that was used.

When I was on fuzeon and flew on a plane my doctors office had a form letter to the TSA that was used.

When I was flying back and forth to Liverpool every month while I was on injectable Interferon, my doctor always gave me a fresh letter every month to explain why I had needles and vials of liquid in my carry-on. (This was not long after 9/11 and they were a LOT stricter about liquids in your carry-on - a lot stricter as in you couldn't have ANY.) I never needed it, but it was reassuring to have it just in case. I carried the kits in a cool-bag with those little blue-liquid filled things you put in the freezer, so I'm guessing it was obvious that it was medical related stuff and that's probably why they never asked about it. But again, it was reassuring to have the letter on hand just in case.

Oh, I actually had to use my letter -- going in/out of Iceland they didn't like me at all.  They pulled me out of the line and I showed them the letter and everything was OK after that. But you're right, it's reassuring to have the letter anyway.

No meth lab, or is someone from Kentucky responsible for that?

Yea, or we may have to walk over to Pioneer Square to get that.  I wonder if that city has a decent Cuban restaurant?  I really would like some Cuban Calamari with Black Beans y rice!  (YUM).  WITH the ink of course.

Am I missing something? When did Fidel take over Italian cuisine? Even in Spain they call it calamares a la romana.

LOL.  Its a great dish that I remember getting at one of my best friends home.  If Mr Mario fixed supper, it was usually that and let me tell ya... not a bit was left over.  Come to think of it he may have just called it squid with BB&R.  Calamari is indeed Italian.
