I swear, I am the world's slowest packer. I don't know why I can't just decisively throw clothes in a suitcase & be done with it. Anyway. I'm off to the South... this is my little pre-trip trip, sort of a pilot if you will, for the big, serious, Southern leg of the Chinese Restaurant Project (which will happen sometime later, perhaps this fall if the stars align properly). This mini trip is more about vacation & my cousin's wedding than it is about Chinese restaurants, but I didn't let that stop me from bringing all my sound gear & 2 Holgas & obsessive census maps & so on & so forth, all of which may explain why packing was such a difficult task. Oy vey!

I'll try to blog from the road, but no promises, especially since the one thing I'm not bringing is a laptop.
