In the meantime, there's the practical matter that Lisa and I are clearly way out of practice when it comes to travel. With the exception of the trip we made here in July, we haven't been on an overnight road trip since January 2020. We both forgot a number of things for this two-night trip. Fortunately, none of them are critical, and in some cases we could back each other up.
For example, I left my primary travel kit, a rather nice hanging bag that I was given by a Menlo Logistics (yes, that long ago) sales manager that has been a regular companion when traveling and that is currently still now hanging on a hook in the bathroom at home in Fernley. Among the things that were in it was a toothbrush and a comb. Rummaging through my luggage, I found a heretofore never-used travel toothbrush about which I'd forgotten and a comb (also never used, still in its plastic wrap) from the hotel in Barcelona where I attended Eurocon a few years ago. Lisa had her toothpaste, so I didn't have to pop out last night and get some.
Of course, in this trip's case, I could have always gone to Raley's and replaced some of the things that I'd left behind. Also, I'd separately packed my bag of medications that I take for my blood pressure and diabetes, so I'm good there. I did leave my blood sugar meter behind, but for a short trip I don't think that's a big deal. However, I think I'm going to have to make an actual paper checklist of things to pack, because as we simply have not been traveling for a couple of years, things I used to do without having to think about it have dropped out of my memory. For some of our planned trips coming up later this year, I might leave behind something more mission-critical.
