            Hi landy how did it go? How are your legs?


            Go Pre!

              Yes...how did it go? do tell...and how did your packing lists work out for you? Smile
                looks like you thought of everything to me. I wouldn´t take a bra myself (hihiii) Big grin Paul Smile
                Actually, the bra came in handy. I was soooo warm that I ended up tucking my shirt up into the bottom band of the bra... Blush Of course, if I was a guy the shirt could have come right off....(note to self: just a jog bra next time)

                    You can actually make it a sticky Smile

                      Rocken mama - great idea, how do i do that?

                        When you click on the thread there should be an options link on the bottom left of the page. It will give you the option to make it a sticky thread or lock it.

                              As moderator, only I can make things sticky...and I agree, this one is worthy. It is now sticky Smile I used this list (the unisex items) and was successful packing for my out of town marathon. Add to list - Food of your liking in case you can't find it when you get there! Dave
                                I think this somehow got un-stickied Smile
