My friend MS over at No More Commas Period asked me about the travel bags I mentioned yesterday. They are by Pack Mate and are available at Amazon (well, what isn't?). I don't remember if I bought them there, but these look like what I have. Mine work a bit differently ~ they're 9 years old and you know how fast technology changes ~ but the end result is exactly the same. All the air is compressed out of clothes and they are, essentially, vacuum-packed.

This will be my last post from CA. The shuttle picks us up at 4:30 AM tomorrow morning to catch a 6:45 flight to MSP, then on to ATL to spend the night with friends. The flight to Rome leaves on Wednesday afternoon at 4:00 and arrives in Rome at 7:30 AM Thursday morning. Next post will be from Atlanta. Ciao.
