One week from today, we take off!
We've been collecting suitcases from ARC (local thrift store) on half-off days. We have 10, mis-matched, floral (or tweed), 80's suitcases! None of the suitcases were more than $4.00!! Each day we work on one more -- packing it to the perfect 50 lbs ....maybe trying to steal one or two free ounces :)
The only complete disaster we've had is the huge, hard shell (the only hard shell), olive green (my favorite) suitcase that had a combination lock. It was unlocked when we bought it and we thought it would stay that way, but somehow...it has locked. What is the 3-number code? Or...will this suitcase go back to ARC...untouched?!
Anyway, the packing continues. How exciting!
