Tags: Off Topic
Edit - as the first event is actually the tour of TR HQ at 10 am, I am amending the time! Besides, that gets it below 24 faster! ;\


======= original post =================
My understanding is, the first official event starts at 2 pm, Friday afternoon, so that is what I am going by, not the time people will start showing up or some kind of Boxie Math.

Make sure you check into the new playlist for your road trip.

Friday Night Music - 19 June 2009 - TR Gathering Road Trip
http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-6230-0.html?forumID=102&threadID=311505&messageID=3097845

I am starting to make my packing checklist today, so I can make sure I don't forget anything. My intention is to have the car loaded and ready to go Wednesday night, so after work on Thursday I can see my boys for a bit, take a quick nap, and then get on the road to meet up with James and Christie.

Clothes
bathroom kit (gotta brush your hair and comb your teeth, right? (CHECK!)
laptop (CHECK!)
cards (just in case)
mp3 player/headphones (CHECK!)
redbull (CHECK!)
jager (CHECK!)
disposable shot glasses (CHECK!)

Not to worry

by Oz_Media In reply to um....

I can keep myself occupied, just don't be jealous when I get to rub one out while you play cool though.

of course

by Oz_Media In reply to Does this mean

I wouldn't do any less than I do for work each day. I would shower though.

I gotta have a list

by CharlieSpencer In reply to ACK!

Otherwise I forgets me some stuffs, and the definitely removes all the fun.

One less thing

by jdclyde In reply to I gotta have a list

in the back of your head, nagging you trying to figure if you forgot something you will need....

Why buy something new just because you are to lazy or unorganized to make the list? Most cases because you can forget it, it is something you don't use a lot, and now you have an extra one?

Why buy new?

by Oz_Media In reply to One less thing

Go without, it's not the end of the world you are only going to be in Kentucky for a couple of days, not the Moon for years.

In this case

by ganyssa In reply to Why buy new?

I think I should shop if I forget something. For me, it is nearly always pajamas or deodorant.

I'm sure there's a trip to a therapist in there somewhere.

Not always the case

by Tig2 In reply to One less thing

The last couple of times that I had to pack out, I managed to forget little things like shampoo and liquid soap. Since I can't use bar soap, this was a problem.

Lazy and disorganized aren't always the reason for such things. My last trip I had 3 hours warning before needing to be on the road.

That's the point

by Oz_Media In reply to I gotta have a list

I find women are generally better organizers and list makers, not meant to be offensive in any way but just a fact of life.

YOu feel that if you forget something, yuo miss out on something.

I figure if I forget something, I simply forgot it, big deal I can live without it and life goes on as always. 'Things' are just things and have no real importance of effect on my life, it's just STUFF.

Forgetting your insulin or something I can understand but that is something most people wouldn't forget anyway.

I remember going camping for two weeks on the side of a cliff/small canon in Northern BC and asking my friend where the other sleepign bag was. He didn't pack it, I didn't pack it. So life goes on, it's only a sleeping bag.

I am more impromptu, if it is planned and over organized I'm not interested in going.

I will go away for however number of days with a handful of teabags in the glove box a pot to heat water in and I'm good to go. The rest I'll take care of as needed, I don't live in the Gobi dessert.

tea bagged?

by jdclyde In reply to That's the point

So, been out of the UK long enough to not be a tea snob?

While I have never gotten into tea enough to make "real" tea, I thought using tea bags was sort of frowned upon? (kind of like a southerner eating instant grits)

Always looking for a good tea, what brand is recommended? (no, not worried about caffeine one way or the other)

Not that you asked me but

by JamesRL In reply to tea bagged?

Twinnings to me makes the best line of teas.

We do cheat and use bags(but Brita filtered water) but in my student days I used a metal tea ball. I don't know if you know what a Bodum/French Press coffee maker is, but they make them now for tea - its just a finer mesh.

Or there are the tea strainers - you put loose tea in the pot and catch it as you pour with a small strainer.

One gentleman at work, whose background is Russian, not British, is a real tea snob. He buys this specialty tea at $25 a lb. The leaves are actually rolled by hand. He uses the bodum like tea pot.
