I am sad to admit that I am the absolute worst at packing or preparing for dance weekends. I will pack the costume I intend to wear, plus two other back-up costumes... but leave my tights at home. Pack tango shoes, latin shoes, and court shoes... but leave my dress shoes at home. Pack fish oil capsules, mona vie, vitamin supplements... but leave my Advil at home. Pack cell phone... but leave the charger at home. Pack digital camera... but leave the memory card at home. The list goes on and on... I have done all of the above, sometimes more than once, and there are so many other stunts I haven't included... So I'll be lugging two or three bags... and still have to find a Wal*Mart or hunt down a boutique or something.
