Now for the packing for our fabulous trip to Hollywood California.
I have my underwear (T-shirts, shorts) and socks packed already. Now to decide which shirts to take with me. Decisions, decisions, decisions. This is the hard part folks.
I'm only taking one pair of pants. If I spill something on my pants (thanks for the tip Walt), I just buy another pair in California. I'm sure they have the same stores there in the Golden State that they have here (hear that Walmart)?
One of my main concerns is all my battery chargers, for my iPhone and my MacBook Pro. I'm taking pictures and videos with both of my iPhones. Yes Virginia, I have TWO iPhones. I didn't trade the last one in, I figure it was worth more to me as a backup camera and computer than the measly $200 credit that Verizon oh so generously was going to give me (maybe).
Another one of my concerns is what toiletries to take with me. Shaving cream is out. Same with hair shampoo (I have a special tar based shampoo for my scalp condition). Toothpaste out too, could be a bomb don't you know. And absolutely razor blades are out. So what do I take and not buy in California? Hopefully my medications, in a clear plastic pouch of course. I'm not even sure I can take my favorite Yardley (Oatmeal) soap. Could be another bomb don't you know? Of course the terrorists have won. Traveling these days is an ordeal.
But come this Wednesday, I will be packed and ready to go at 4 am in the morning for my 7:35 AM lift off from Philadelphia International Airport. You know, that plane that is coming in from Tel Aviv Israel and stopping over in Philly.
I'm taking on a "personal" carry on back (containing my Macbook Pro laptop) and a "carry on size" suitcase containing my underwear and backup shirts. Let's see if they let me on the plane with that suitcase.
Pat will be arriving at LAX a few minutes after I arrive. Then we take it from there. I'll rent a car for our destination, the Hollywood Bed and Breakfast.

And the adventure begins!
