1. Re: Preparing for Vegas

Break in a new pair of walking shoes, about 10 days in advance. Call and confirm hotel reservations. Print out discount coupon for off-site parking. Stop newspaper delivery. Go to bank and pick up 1's and 5's for tips. Pick up a Racing Form so I have something to do on the plane. Go through my file and make sure I have copies of all offers, tickets, and reservations.

All this kind of falls in a routine. But it is till easy to forget something.

Clean the heck out of my house....I mean scrub down walls, baseboards, change filters, wash blinds, clean out closets....all that stuff you only do when you absolutely have to do it.

I find it really helps combat the back-to-reality depression that comes with returning home. Well, that and immediately planning my next trip anyway...

Go over my list of things to take. Get my pedicure! Always double check my money envelopes, drivers license and flight boarding pass.

I've printed off my itinerary with flight and hotel info and my travel insurance info. Got my ticket for MJ ONE printed off. Going to do one last load of laundry of things I want to take with me. Got my money all exchanged. Took care of travel notice for credit card a while ago. Still coming in here often to read TRs and gather more info.
