Yes, I know it’s only Monday, but I’m already looking forward to the weekend. Le Monsieur and I will be celebrating our 20th anniversary with a long weekend road trip to…
that bastion of Over The Top-ness, Las Vegas. I’ve never been much of a gambler, and le Monsieur is less and less so over the years, but we do really enjoy the splendid selection of restaurants, the opportunity to see a show, to wander through surreal and ersatz environments, and to just have some “off the clock” time to relax and unwind. In fact we’ve found that the few hours’ drive acts as a wonderful decompression period, so by the time we arrive we’re relaxed and ready to enjoy ourselves. We have a multitude of options here, and can do as much or as little as our mood dictates.
Because we’re traveling by car, size and weight of luggage isn’t an issue, but I still prefer to pack light. I used to feel compelled to take a lot of dressier options, and rarely ended up wearing them. Like everywhere else these days, “Smart Casual” will work in Las Vegas for almost all venues. As of this morning, the weather forecast looks pleasantly warm, but I tend to get chilled in air-conditioned environments and will bring lightweight layers.
I’m going to be test-driving a couple of items in advance of our more extended vacation in May-June, and will report back.
How many items do you usually pack for a long weekend trip? Do you have favorite destinations for weekend getaways?
