When you travel, do you start laying out clothes and toiletries a week in advance, or throw a bunch of stuff into a bag at the last minute? If you are in the latter camp, I suggest you get some assistance in building a list and making your way through it. You could think of it as an ambitious three to six-week back country camping trip and put appropriate energy into assembling your expedition-mates and equipment.
Here are some broad categories:
- Getting your home ready (nothing to trip over, shower grab bars etc)
- Who will stay with you for several weeks? Who will visit you, during that time and thereafter?
- Stocking up with food
- Assembling gear to help you through this process.
I’ve gathered together some of my top suggestions for stuff you can purchase. I’ll add that link here soon.
