I’m going to a Conference this weekend Back in my home state of Minnesota. I am going there to Address a Convention full of Librarians, Believe it or not. For me, the worst part of going On the road For business is not the traveling; it’s all the preparation you have to do. I created a Whole checklist of things I have to do when I travel. First, I Confirm that my Flight will be On time departing from LAX. Next, I call to Double-check on my reservation for the hotel and the Rent a car. After that, I Pull out my suitcase and start packing. I’m a Light packer, so I bring only the pants, shirts, socks, and underwear I’m going to need, nothing more. I Throw in my Toiletries bag with the usual stuffβAishaver, shaving cream, toothbrush, toothpaste, and Flossβ and then I’m just about done. Finally, I go through my Briefcase to make sure I have all the things I’ll need for the conferenceβ my Badge, my laptop, my Overhead Transparencies, a notepad, and some pens. Now I’m readyβ off I go to my old home.
