A passion for podcasting to tell the world about the great things Rotary is doing.

It’s a pretty light news day (actually really light) so thought we could share some of our travel and packing secrets.

The trick these days is to get everything in your carry-on bag so you don’t have to check a bag.

Traveling with a computer and having to carry the power blocks, adapters, cords just gets too heavy for this kid. So I opted for anything that can be charged with a USB. The whole charger for four devices is 2.5 x 2.5 x 1 inch. So I downgraded to a notebook that can be charged with a USB and even bought a USB razor.

When you’re on the road for weeks or months, for social reasons, you might want to wash your clothes. A camping clothesline is pretty light and small. Paper clips make great clothes pins and can keep your chips crispy as well. You can buy a pack of ten for $1.25.

Those roll up compression bags let you put a lot of clothes in a small space. Even dress shirts and suit coats come out without a lot of wrinkles. The trick is to roll up t-shirts and put them at both ends with the stuff you don’t want to winkle in the middle.

These kayak slippers are really small and great for padding around the hotel room.

Those are some of my tricks, what are yours?
