Hints you've packed too much

If you swap out a normal-sized box of tissues for one of those little cube things because it takes up less room in the car, you may be trying to bring too much.

Yeah, I told myself that...as I was swapping the Puffs boxes.

Reno committee member Rick Lindsey sent me the following helpful hints after seeing email I sent last night saying the car was 90% packed. All that was left was finding room for the other 90%. That latter bit includes all my personal luggage and computer, so you can say I'm motivated.

Rick wrote:

Place all excess baggage on top of the car. This is your overhead
baggage area. It is possible these items may shift during the trip and
be completely missing upon arrival, especially if they are not secured.
A neighbor can assist you in seeming to secure these if you wish. You
may instead trunk-check these items by placing them near the rear of the
vehicle, and they will unintentionally be left behind upon your departure.

Since this is an international trip, we ask that you label every one of
your belongings with your credit card number. This will insure that the
proper tariffs can be collected if your belongings arrive with you, or
proper delivery can be expedited if they do not. Please remember to
include the little 3-digit number on the back of the card.

We know you have a choice of carriers, and we are pleased you've chosen
Toad Hall Transportation. "Leaping into the next decade by hard work

I'll be out the door and on the road just as soon as I finish following Rick's advice. I'm a tad worried about the coffee mugs, and even more about the drivers who risk seeing stfnal coffee mugs flying toward their windshields. At least they'll be behind me. And the chocolates are in a styrofoam cooler. That should protect them from the sun beating directly down on the top of the roof.

Why, yes, I am going to the Worldcon. Whee!

Rick's advice
Rick's advice is an absolute hoot. Have a great time at the worldcon and call me when you feel the time is right.

You could make even more room by removing the mirror, like Raul Julia in Cannonball Run...
