Today is the day when the SCOTTEVEST No Baggage Challenge for Charity becomes a reality and moves into high gear. Yes, tomorrow morning Larry and I both fly out for Las Vegas and the Consumer Electronics Show 2011. That means today, Sunday, January 2, 2011, is the day when we need to pack our clothes into our luggage. Scratch that, not into our luggage but rather we need to pack our clothes and electronics into our jackets. Yes, that’s the deal with a No Baggage Challenge for Charity. You can only bring whatever it is you can actually carry on your person in your SCOTTEVEST clothing.
The process of figuring out how to make this a reality has been an interesting one. It required both Larry and me to put far more thought into the process of packing than we normally would. Larry is one of those people who will bring at least one complete outfit per day when he is traveling and I’m one of those people who does the same but often it ends up only using half of what I brought.
So here’s a quick rundown of some of the decisions we made along the way and how it will all fit together.
Dan and Larry of Geardiary.com prepare to leave for their own No Baggage Challenge to CES to raise money for Haiti Plunge. Follow the link to check out their packing videos and for links to further information about their trip.
