Ruth's what-to-wear chart

Ruth's what-to-wear chart
Originally uploaded by daveterry
In preparation for our two month trip to China, Ruth made her what-to-wear chart. She lists all the clothes she wants to bring and draws lines between what goes with what. Anything with only a couple of lines gets axed!

(She doesn't have a shoe chart as she will only bring two pair. The ones she wears on the plane and the sandals in the carry on bag.)

We're big on We've been traveling now this way and we'll never go back to check-on bags. On our last two month-long trips to China we only brought a carry-on bag. Once we tried this, we never went back to checking bags. No lost luggage, no wait on arrival, no back pain, just to name a few benefits. If you are interested in lightening your load, check out the Go-Light-Guru at Great advice.

So we are locked and loaded. We leave for our two month adventure in China on Monday.

Plans are:
1) Photograph: You'll be able to follow our adventure vicariously at: (Or just click on the Travels tab above.)

2) Sketch: I'm looking forward to more sketch time.

3) Stories: We'll keep you posted on what's happening. (Sorta like last time's China 2008 trip. (Reading this blog is a great insomnia cure!)
