I found a handy little iPhone application called Packing Pro.  Between now and next Thursday, this is what I have to get to do.  It’s a bit overwhelming,  but so much better to have it in front of me than all tangled up in my head.  The app. lets you enter the length of your trip, how many adults and kids will be going, and the climate you will be in.  I entered in all that info., and here’s what it kicked out.  Pretty accurate.  I’m overwhelmed  impressed!
