The Mother of All Packing Lists!

Saturday, December 6, 2014

This baby packing list is based on a destination where you wouldn’t have access to many of the things we deem to be necessities. For example, when we went to Cuba, there really wasn’t much you could buy, and what you could buy was very expensive. Of course, you won’t need everything on this list, and do cross reference with the Carry On Packing List as there are repeat items.
