We are entering the black hole known in the outdoor retailer industry as “Show Season.” This happens twice a year for us. One big show in August and three shows in January and February. We leave for the first one tomorrow, so I’m packing.
I’m a pretty light packer. I really lay it all out and that’s that. There are no clothing “choices.” I pre-determine what I’m going to wear each day and I pack just that. I don’t have any makeup or hair products, so the bathroom stuff is basically my toothpaste and toothbrush. I can easily fit a week’s worth of stuff in my small gym bag or a daypack.
Just a head’s up: the Daily Dose posts may be delayed while I am gone. Usually after a day at the shows I’m wiped out and pretty much eat dinner and go to bed, but this time around I’ll truly try to make my evening postings. If I just can’t muster the strength, I’ll catch up with them all on Thursday once I’m back home.
