I am gearing up, no pun intended, for a trip to Vegas for the site and for some relaxation. It got me thinking this morning about packing for the trip. I was going through all the stuff I need, then that internal voice said: “How much underwear do we need to take?” I stopped and thought, well a good bit! Not that I change several times a day but I like to have options.
When going on a trip I have gotten really good at packing just enough. I used to be a major over packer. I had clothes for 2-3 weeks for a 4-day trip. Now, I have it down to a science. I usually have just enough clothes plus a change in case something happens. As for underwear…that’s an entirely different story.
I pack enough underwear for the days I will be gone. Then while I”m still packing I see other pairs I love and say “oh let’s put those in too, oh yeah, these as well.” Till I have prob 12 pairs of underwear for a 4-day trip. You maybe asking, do I wear all these undies? Nope, I don’t, I just like having the options for something to wear.
One thing I try to do as well is match my undies for the climate I am going too. For instance, Vegas is super hot this time of year so I will pack a lot of modal and other light pairs to wear during the day. It makes the day much better when you can stay cool
Depending on the trip, sometimes I come home with even more underwear. If I find a deal I will buy up some pairs I like. I haven’t become the world traveler yet to start buying pairs in each country I visit to remember the trip. Soon I hope! But luckily I don’t buy too many on vacation.
I”m curious how you guys pack for trips. Do you over pack underwear as well? Does your wife/husband/girl friend/boyfriend give you grief about it or do they encourage it? Or do you have underwear you consider vacation underwear? Lastly, do you match to meet the climate you are in?
