When do you start packing?
I think I've asked this once before, but I like the game, so I'll ask again:
When do you start packing for a vacation/trip?
I'm 19 days till I fly out for 2 weeks to Florida.... I feel like I'm still too far out to start packing, but I had nightmares all last night that I forgot everything I needed and had packed random things... so obviously subconsciously I'm thinking I need to start. Normally I pack about a week out and then spend the days leading up to the day I leave repacking.
So when do you start packing?
I'm not much of a traveler, but I do remember the thrill of being at sleepaway camp sometime before the last day, packing for the trip home. That was my first experience with the fun of arranging everything in the trunk. Really, as soon as you have the urge, you should do a little packing just to channel your excitement. As you say, you can repack later. Sounds like a great plan!
Tripping on the Podium
For short trips (weekends), I pack fifteen minutes before leaving. For long trips, I pack the day before. To me, it is easy to forget things if you pack too early because you are taking things out to use them.
Maybe try making a list of what you need to take now. I have done that for longer trips.
