I'm on a roll in the advice giving department so I'm going to keep going and pass along another hard-earned tip. This time the topic is clothing and the secret that I am about to share with you is HUGE . It might just save you money and months of psychic distress. The topic is travel clothing and the secret is... Pack the clothes that you like to wear. I know, I know, this may seem like the most obvious advice ever, kind of along the lines of Save Money, Live Better or Drink Water, Be Less Thirsty. But preparing for a long trip alters your brain. You get excited and in America, getting excited makes you want to buy things. Things like special anti-microbial underwear . And jackets that stuff into little pouches. And moderately ugly but extremely comfortable walking shoes . So you start your trip with your new purchases and with some durable, casual clothing that you feel will hold up to the rigorous experience of being washed in someone else's washing machine.
Hey - you guys are in Canada, according to your map. Awesome stuff.ReplyDelete
Let me know when you are going to be in Calgary. We have an extra bed, and you would have your own shower to use.
Thanks, Terry! After Vancouver, we are going to roll back down into the Seattle area to spend some time with some Phoenix friends that are making the trip up to meet with us. What good friends we have!ReplyDelete
After that, we are headed East to Glacier National Park and may or may not head back North after that. We will certainly let you know our plans and we really appreciate the kind offer!
