All Our Bags Are Packed...

EuroTrek Day 1:  Atlanta to... Somewhere over the Atlantic

The great one-bag-for-three-months experiment begins.  Even though lots of careful thought has gone into our packing, we completely expect to add or subtract minor items along the way.  Dianne has fallen hard for packing cubes.
Once loaded, they all just climb into the backpack and nestle in there together, making it easy to locate what I need without having to dig through a lot of loose items.  Of course, the labels were only on the packs for the photo, so hopefully I'll remember what's in each one.  Just in case, they are different colors and do have mesh lids to give me a hint of what's inside.
Ken went more for the "roll everything up and pack it inside" method.  (That's his backpack on the floor.)  Time will tell which system works better... in the unlikely event that either of us is willing to admit our plan is inferior.

With our flight leaving Atlanta at 5:40 p.m., we had most of the day to finish our last minute preparation and pick up a rental car for our trip to the airport.  Much cheaper than a cab and a fraction of what it would cost to park our car at the airport for 93 days.
