    I love a good spreadsheet, it’s so satisfying to create one & actually use it.
    No fancy planning software (looking at you Monday) for me, I just use Excel & on the rare occasion, G Suite.
    I could wing it & not use one but my anxiety would have a thing or two to say about that. ;)
    Have a great trip & safe travels.

    NFC, you have more plans for an "unplanned " trip than I've made in the last 20 trips combined!
    It must be exhausting.
    More power to you!:beer:

    My VMB lurker friend @FreshNotFrozen uses Word to plan trips as well… it drives me nuts as I cannot imagine organizing data that way :) but whatever works!

    I use MS OneNote. Excel meant for data (ie pivot tables and graphing) , not drafting communications. I find it hard to use it like a word document.

    I take it a step further and put alternative options, mandatory must do's, packing lists, Walgreens shopping list, etc.

    I even screen shot a lot of things so I don't get confused. Ie. My flight itinerary.

    I will also include lists. Ie like where to get 7* drink tickets, etc.
