    Thanks for the recap posts!! We are really enjoying them- I think it’s one of the most interesting parts of a trip. I can’t BELIEVE how much stuff you sent back!! WOW- we are being SO stingy about what is getting packed so we avoid having too much!

      We thought we had it right….boy were we WRONG! We had way way way to much clothes….we get laundry done every week or week and a half. We were lucky to have friends coming that we were able to send our stuff home with them!!

      We should have that post out later this month. It was mostly clothes and bags/containers. We should have listened to all the other bloggers and packed HALF of what we thought we needed!

    Yes, recaps are an excellent idea. I’m surprised you counted the number of beers and ice-creams!

    A littler over $1800 for a month of travel including 77 beers? Nice! I will be very interested to know what you sent back to WI, I’m not surprised that tackle box for your pills went back though- that thing is enormous!
