Counting the Days

We leave on the 11th, arrive in Calgary on the 12th. Today is the 23rd. There are 19 days until we leave and 20 days until #1 son and d-i-l meet us at the Calgary Airport.

Today I dragged out three suitcases; my two old black Samsonite clamshell hardsides that have been around the world with me a few times in the past 20 years and one good Canadian made softside. We have not had good luck with local made softsides. three have self destructed after one or two trips. The hardside weighs 2 kg more than the softside, meaning keeping under 20 kg is more difficult but they are indestructable.

We are starting to figure out what clothes we need to take and what we still need to buy to take with us. Like Tanya's bp meds.
