Off to Cal-e-forn-e-a

Taking my semi-regular trip to the Bay Area to visit my co-workers and generally cause trouble. Have these trips almost down to a science in terms of packing. I am getting more efficient at packing for these trips. Helps that I am getting lighter and smaller gear. Or rather "getting better at figuring out what I can do without for a few days."

Despite carrying two laptops and enough clothes for five days, I can get down to two carry on-sized backpacks now. That doesn't leave a lot of extra room, and that's not a bad thing. I want to discourage large purchases or equipment acquisitions while I am in the Bay Area, or at least not carry it on the plane with me. That's why they invented FedEx. In fact, if I were smart, I would have FedExed a lot of stuff to the office already so I wouldn't have to carry as much on the plane. Oh well, maybe I'll be smart enough to do that on the way backā€¦

Meanwhile, back to work, or maybe off to bed.
