North to Alaska
To further complicate the problem of this packing assignment, we will be cruising the Inside Passage of Alaska, which has its own special needs. Binoculars are a must for searching the shores for wildlife. And, for a visit to the state where the national bird is the mosquito, bug spray is another essential.
A final dilemma involves whether to roll or to fold. My mother introduced me to rolling clothes for a suitcase which saves both on space and wrinkles. It's the way sailors pack their duffel bags.
This time I'm starting early and expect to for the first time master the art of packing light. Oh, and it looks like I'll need to get my passport OUT of the suitcase!
