Nope, I did not need to go see Trevor to send my shoes...I am a well conditioned packing prodigy. Back in the day Big Al worked for UPS as a midnight supervisor while going to school at Palmer. Well as we grew up we could not pack anything right and it was not until my recent longer duration trips that I have come to appreciate what he taught us.
Marlin called me a couple days into this most recent trip asking me to bring some American Whisky to Shanghai with me. Sure...Little did I know that that was 10# of precious weight that I am pretty sure a couple pairs of wedges are sad about. I had my spare bed covered with clothes that range from wick away to "pretty sure I can get away with a couple wears and wrinkles". The good news was that I am taking 2 bags...no I am not bringing back 10 gold cats with the waving hand...I successfully managed to pack both bags with room to spare and Marlin no has an extra bag to bring things home in. I had to forgo some the rolling techniques I often use and actually folded things...I know I am still in shock.
I started my sleep deprivation this week in hopes that the trip will not reek havoc on my body. I packed until 2am and then was up around 6am. I managed to get to the gym and had a good workout with my boxing partner and kept a good pace. The Giles car service picked me up and the last stop out of town after a tune up and hug from the fam was DUNKIN! They saw me coming and hooked me up. Man I hope that there is some good coffee in China! I got to the airport with plenty of time to spare. I saw an acquaintance and ducked in the Sky Club. THis place is amazing. Free cocktails and snacks and the people watching is amazing!! It smells like old spice and whiskey in the corner I am sitting in and I am pretty sure that I just saw this guy smooch his iPad. No judging here! They just announced that we are boarding and I am about to embark on a 13 hr flight to Tokyo and then a 4 hr flight to Shanghai. Thanks to my amazing hubs to be, I am flying business class and about to rock out Delta with the best looking compression socks...NO CANKLES here!
I will post when I can and pictures will follow. Hope you are all well and thanks to my amazing family and friends. I love and appreciate you all! xox
