    STUFF TO REMEMBER FOR CIII

    As I prepare to hit the road in roughly 30-hours, it dawned on me how much stuff I still need to get organized for this little pilgrimage.

    So, some of this stuff may or may not apply to some or all of you:

    4-DAY CIII Badge (I actually had my first nightmare the other night about arriving in Indy without it.)

    DEODORANT : There?s a reason why it?s at the top of the list, folks. Actually there are about 30,000 reasons why it should be at the top of EVERYONE?S list.

    Toothpaste/toothbrush (see above)
    Breath mints (ditto)
    Driver?s License
    Socks
    Underwear
    T-shirts
    Jeans
    Slacks
    Belt(s)
    Shoes
    In-soles
    Hat(s)
    Laptop
    Blank CD?s
    Digital Camera
    Batteries: AA, AAA, 9V
    Memory Card
    Music CD?s
    Wallet
    Credit Card(s)
    Checkbook
    Cash
    Water bottles
    Protein Bars/shakes
    ?Snacks?
    Orthopedic pillow
    Sunglasses
    Vitamins
    Advil
    Prilosec
    Eye drops
    Inhaler
    Nasal spray
    Day-Planner/Palm Pilot

    COSTUME PARTS: Boots/shoes, belt(s), helmet(s), armor, cod(s), weapon(s), COVERTEC BELT CLIP, amp, microphone, jumpsuit(s), cape, robe, CD player, MP-3 player, more batteries, chamois, goop, duct tape, screwdrivers, velcro.


    Feel free to add your own individual contributions, as you never know who else might need a reminder.

    Velcro or a mini sewing kit for those unexpected quick costume fixes.

    I plan on stuffing my sewing tackle with just about everything I could need. Not to mention all sorts of thread colors.

    Hair stuff galore: ties, pins, spray, more pins, pieces...

    Make-up galore: every day, costume, everything I have.

    Corset. Yes. Corset.

    I'm bringing a stripped down emergency costume repair kit. Should have ample duck tape, rivets, tools, and blades.

    What? So Corsets don't apply to everyone, just like SS's Prilosec doesn't. It's up there. :p

    If I had listed Corset, it would be giving TOO much away on my Stuper-Secret Costume.

    Perhaps I should've just listed a general category:

    PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS

    New additions:

    Cell phone
    Cell phone charger

    Spare space in luggage for bringing all those goodies back. Unless you plan on buying a new bag as well.

    Of the people going on the Northwest flights Wednesday morning, is anyone checking bags, or just taking carry on?

    I figured with some people having costume pieces and stuff, at least one person would be doing check in?

    I can go either way with my bags.

    As far as I know, nobody is checking anything. Jen is taking a bunch of our costumes and stuff, so everyone should only be left with a backpack or so to carry on the plane.

    Rachel, Isabel, and I are on NW. We're checking our bags. One big piece of luggage for costumes/pieces, couple other pieces for clothing, I'm carrying my helmet and we're carrying somewhat important stuff in our backpacks.

    Not checking, obviously. None of the AA people are. We figure five people flying on the same flight with no checked luggage and carryons full of weird costume bits will get us through quicker. :p


    hehehehehe. Best laid plans.
