I would suggest more polyster clothing so it can dry out faster if you get wet or when washing it. tops ,pants, undies,socks..etc...

drying a pair of jeans would take almost all day if left in the sun.

I agree with your polyester suggestion. Some of our clothing is polyester, however we are considering getting more merino wool items. I've read that merino wool clothing drys fast and stays warm even when wet. We'd like to incorporate more natural materials into our travel inventory.

The jeans on my list are not made out of denim, they are made out of a quick drying material. I can't remember the name at the moment.

take a 2nd credit card incase the first failed one is locked or fails.

Good tip. My wife will be carrying her's as well.

put your electronic's in a ziplock bag so they don't get wet.

The Zip Top Anti-Static Bag is a form of ziplock bag.

combine your safety bag and your toiletry bag into one.

I see where you're going with this one. However, we plan to keep our safety bags in an easy to reach section of our packs for quick access if needed. If we include all our toiletries in the safety bags it will make it difficult to quickly find the safety items we are looking for.

a sleep eye mask..

I had considered a sleep mask, but it was suggested that the bandana I have listed could be used.

Thanks for all the suggestions. Do you have any suggestions for a daypack? Just something to carry while out from the room for the day? I was thinking something just big enough to carry a bottle of water, digital camera in its bag, notepad, etc. I was considering using the Japanese art of Furoshiki.

get a small backpack roll it up or velco it rolled up and use it for a day bag. don't get camo... its not problem here in the usa, but if you travel to other international countries , they could view u as military in foreign country if you get the point. you could be stopped or held against your will.keep your passport on you. and keep photocopies of drivers license,passport,back in your safe at the hotel or place of stay.

make sure you manually record all emergency number numbers on a sheet of paper and laminate it.nearest consultant office,etc

get rid of your laptop cable and get a small cable for your big travel bag so you can secure at the airport while sleeping,using the bath room,etc...

get some random stickers and sticker up your netbook. nothing with political or regilious tones on them. use jokes, parts of bumper stickers.

never trust a stranger with your bag, never, no matter how nice they are.

relax and have fun. it should be a good trip

Thanks for the feedback. Good tip on not using camo outside of U.S.

I have found that I only need about one third of what I think I need when I travel so just keep that in mind :)
