I have issues...

So, I just packed for a cruise that's 40 days away.

I have some issues. I couldn't help it, but what do you take. I've cruised before, but I always overpack. At this point, I just want to aim to underpack. The big questions I have are this: Should I pack more than 1 set of dress pants. I have a few shirts, but I can just rotate these with the set of pants. How about bathing suits? these are priority. I've got 2 that fit and 2 that I can wear without getting banned from the waterslide.

I'm only taking 1 set of shoes, my dress shoes and my flippy floppies, of course. I thought about taking my running shoes, just in case, I have a need to work out. (Yeah right. I'm there for the food and the fun.... and desert!!!)

Another reason I want to be on top of what I take, is that I know I'm going to need to save room for Stacy. She'll pack plenty, and I'm not sure how much luggage I'll be allowed on the flight. Plus, I'll have to carry it, and I'm lazy.

Anyways, its still 40 days away, so I shouldn't worry too much, but as they say, "God is in the details."

Woohoo, 40 days until vacation

I am so ready, and today I booked my flights.

It's gonna be a great time. So far our itenarary looks like this, flying into Tampa on Saturday and we sail away on Sunday. Monday is a day at sea. Snorkeling and shopping in Grand Cayman on Tuesday. Snorkeling and exploring Cozumel on Wednesday. Then we head to Belize on Thursday and Honduras on Friday. Finally, we have a day at sea on Saturday, and return to Tampa on Sunday.

Our return flights, leave Tampa and lay-over in Atlanta. Then on to Indianapolis.

So for the next few days, I'm gonna be posting almost exclusively about this trip. I'm excited. Really, really excited. I think, in the last 50 days, I've watched Captain Ron 20 times, read numerous travel logs, and have researched every snorkeling spot in Grand Cayman.
