Trip report please.
Simple 'topcard' rules for packing:
3-night trip is the default, so 4 days total for clothing needs.
Jeans are a "two-day" wear item, so I only have to pack one pair (plus the ones I wear on the flight out).
I pack 4 each of underwear, undershirts/t-shirts & socks. The "extras"? That's for when I end up staying an extra unplanned night...which seems to occur about 20% of the time!
I pack 3 collared, button down casual shirts (think 'flannel'), folded on their wire-hangers.
If I'm planning to stay downtown the entire time, the hiking boots I wear on the flight out are all the shoes I need...if a strip visit is on the agenda, I pack a pair of sneakers.
Add a dopp-kit with all of my toiletries, and my Samsung Pad, and it all fits in my medium roller bag, with cigs, player cards & E-cig cartridges in the outer small pockets of the bag... which I could carry-on, but I never do...and since I always check my bag, I don't worry about the volume of liquids I'm taking and I never worry about over-head bin space!
On the other hand, if you fly Southwest and a chauffeur is escorting you in a limousine, why not embrace your inner Diana ross and pack anything and everything? Free baggage and you need not lift a finger.
I wear jeans/shorts (blue jeans, black shorts) a couple times on the trip. I never have problems spilling, so I'm not worried about that. This saves a TON of space in the backpack. I also MIGHT (but rarely) wear a shirt a couple times, but rarely. Something that can go with EVERYTHING helps a lot. I also get toiletries in Vegas at the cheap shops. This way, I can also pick up a case of beer.
I also use packing cubes which saves a ton of space in the backpack as well. I have this backpack that can expand. It really is the size of a carry on, but looks and functions like a backpack, so no worries about carry on fees either.
I usually end up with a lot of room to spare for souvenirs or something like gym shoes in the bag because I like to air out my feet on the plane after a long day of walking (and making people uncomfortable that they get a different seat... meaning I get a whole row to myself)
OH, I also pack extra underwear. Fresh underwear is a must, especially when it is super HOT! And sometimes those buffets give you the runs to the point you might have leakage issues before reaching a toilet......
If you put your feet up between the seats to stretch your legs out you can get someone to take a picture of you as the "ewww, can you believe it?" person.
Packing cubes....love them!
It makes a difference if you leave the socks on or if you air airing out like a Sasquatch.
As long as you keep said feet within the confines of your temporarily appointed space!
I once sat in front of a person who repeatedly kept trying to push and shove their bare feet on top of the arm rest between the window and my seat.....while I'm sitting in the seat.
Rather than confront them, I played dumb....screeched VERY LOUDLY "Oh my God...what IS that? Is that someone's bare FOOT on my arm" In a Frightened and shocked manner.
I didn't confront them but I'm sure I embarrassed them.
They removed their feet very quickly. Everyone on the plane definitely looked at me/them.
They did not attempt that again.
