LEAVING ON FOUR JET PLANES

My neighbor told me that all she had to do to finally get pregnant was take a nice, relaxing trip to Hawaii.

Plane ticket to awe-inspiring places like this? Check.
Romantic weekend of nuptials? Check.
Husband? Oh wait, crap.

Somehow I don't think this is going to work out for me...

Anyway, I'll be gone for a while, but I'll return with stories and photos and tales of changing planes four times in one day.

And here's a little tidbit for people in the travel-size industry: Will you please consider making products that one can actually take on an airplane? It's been over a year, so you'd think the market would've dictated 1.7 oz bottles. But no. Apparently I don't get to take contact solution or sunscreen to Hawaii. Thanks a ton. Big pointy metal knitting needles are fine, but not my sunscreen.

3 Have a great time! As for contact solution - now you know why I recently bought a new pair of glasses - I'm tired of trying to work around that so I'm cutting out the annoyance. Although I did find something small (can't remember what it was) the last time I traveled. *sigh* One thing I didn't check was Minimus.b-i-z (remove the dashes, someone blacklisted the damn extension!) They are Soldier's Angels they do travel sized stuff - you might want to check them out and see if they have sizes you want. (or click over to my blog, they're on my sidebar under companies that support our troops)

4 fyi - You can pack 3 oz containers of your travel size stuff. (I am no expert on contact lens solution packaging.) And all your gels and liquids (each 3 oz or less) needs to fit in a clear 1 quart plastic bag. I usually put that in a gallon bag so I have "secondary containment." And you can pick up some decent bottles to fill at most drugstores for $1 each or less. (I hate buying travel size for shampoo and lotion - yes, many hotels provide, but I like what I like.) And yes, I am a bit of a geek, but this has worked well as I travel around the US and globe. Have a great trip!

5 Jck - since lense solution has to be sterile or you risk eye infection, it's a really bad idea to transfer it to another container. That's the really sucky part. *sigh*
