Pack what first?

What must go into the suitcase and not be left behind? What must be there? First thing into my borrowed little carry on suitcase went: tah dah. Our swimsuits. Silly me. I don't generally allow others to get a gander at my varicose veins but heh, if the South is sweaty and I've been snooping and walking all day, a pool might be just the ticket. Other thing that went in first: the charger for my camera. Yes, I still have a now old fashioned camera. Got to remember the camera while I am at it!

@TiarasOceanView Charleston South Carolina. I suppose it will be raining when we are there but I am guessing it will be steamy rain.

@TiarasOceanView I'm not looking forward to the airports or the skinny airplane seat but three days of adventure will be worth it. I wish you were coming, too.

Huh??? Old fashioned??? When did that happen??? I love my camera, it give me shots a phone just can't take at 24 megapixels. Hey, you go girl, it's about comfort not what other people think.

@rebelann You'd have fun in our Staples store. You could tell them off cause they are not stocking tablets or cameras now. Its all about the smart phone.

When Nikon makes a smart phone with the same quality photos I get with my cam I might consider giving up the cam @sallypup

My first item to pack are my meds. In fact, I start counting and packing them with time. My eldest daughter gets on of them where she works, but each packet has 2 pills. So I have to check how many free meds I have and if I will need to buy some.

@marguicha Yes for sure on the meds. I will have ibuprofen along for pain in case my legs and back get achy from all our touristy walking. We're going on airplanes so we have to be sure to pack all my husband's various vitamins and my ibuprofen in a clear bag.

@marguicha Just so long as you feel well that is what matters. My hubby has diabetes. He is taking lots of mineral supplements and vitamins as well as eating very well. He now takes less meds since he started doing this.

Go have fun and don't worry about your varicose veins. I, too, have an old camera. I also have a digital camera.

@RichardMeister Thanks. My camera is digital. We were at Staples the other day and the clerk there said that they do not sell cameras of any sort any more!! Everyone is using smart phones these days so Staples makes no money off cameras.

@sallypup I have an old TopCon that uses film and an Olympus digital. I suppose everyone is now using their smart phones.

@RichardMeister Mine is just a simple Canon digital gizmo but I still get okay photos- not at all good for birds, though and that I wish I had. Where do you get film from? Off the internet?

@sallypup Thank you. Yes, I was not very regular here but the last month has seen me posting and interacting.

Yes, a dip in the pool seems just right after a day of sweating. Glad you are taking the camera too.

@Corbin5 My old lady concern is whether the pool will be full of mischief making kids. I'm packing with hope in my heart!

Have a fun time. I'm going to buy my first swim suit in years for my trip next month since it will be pretty hot in one of the places. I figure they'll never see me again.

@silvermist I am not a swimmer, either. I am too scared to get above my head in the water but I do like to walk in it and feel cooler.

I don't actually pack it first, but I do grab it first and place it right beside my suitcase... they are called meds! Anything else I forget, I can just buy!

Yes remember to bring charges for phone and camera, bring some good books, bring a flash light they come in handy, bring batteries for flashlight, and remember clothes you will need them : )

I have my clothes laid out on a bed and am in the process of deciding what I'll take and what I'll leave home. It gets pretty tricky.
