I’m bringing everything

I’m packing. I leave on Wednesday, from work, which means I need to be all packed by Tuesday night. Better to start a day early so there are fewer (notice I didn’t say “is nothing) left behind.

I need to do a load of laundry too. Need to have the right underwear (not cotton boxers) and I am wearing a tarpon shirt from Skinny Water Culture that would make much more sense in a Florida context.

When I look at what I’m bringing it occurs to be that my packing list looks something like this…

I’m bringing lines for rods we don’t have, just in case. I’m bringing spools of tippet and extra sun gloves and just everything. Better safe than sorry, I’d say. I know it is silly. I’m going to Florida, not Andros. I could probably buy something I forget and there will be extra gear on hand, I’m sure, but I like to be prepared and so I’m going to have to check a bag, me thinks.

Now… I wonder what I’m forgetting…

That's just about it, I think.

That’s just about it, I think.

Another reason tomorrow is a big day is that tomorrow I teach my daughter how to spell “sister.” She has no idea.

Yep, it is going to be a big year.

  3. Congrats! Have fun in FL and good luck w/ the spelling lesson!

  4. So…what you’re really saying is that I don’t have to pack anything. Perfect, thanks!!

    And congratulations! I think we’ll need to do at least one shot in Florida to celebrate. 😉

    ONE shot. Not more than that, or I wont’ be in working order in the AM and dammit, I’m not going to miss fishing to a hangover!

    If you have an 11… bring it, as I, somehow, have at least 3 11 wt. lines. I don’t have an 11 weight (see my confusion?).

  6. Wow! Big news, congrats!!!

    Still jealous of your FL trip, though! Have fun, looking forward to trip updates!
