Is there an Alton Brown packing for travel scheme?
Celtic moon's idea to write down what you wore immediately when you get back from a trip is brilliant. (I wrote down everything I ate but I know what I didn't wear is probably more useful.)
Two weeks, two cities, two climates. I thought I was organized with 4 black pants and tops in four different weights with a few bits of color to relieve the boredom. Wrong. I only wore half of what I brought because only two of the "weights" were comfortable and so there were more dirty clothes issues than I intended.
What are other ways of packing? I think my major flaw was that the "weights" were too narrow -- for very hot, medium hot, cool, and cold. I bought some new clothes for the trip but they weren't helpful. What weight / kind of fabric is the most flexible? I need to re-think my whole approach. I always take too much and don't wear half, but I never know which half to leave at home.
