My parents didn't vacation a lot when I was growing up, I never totally understood why, but they really didn't travel much from the time my sister and I were born, until we were high school age. Then we started spending winters in Florida. The Funny farm / Bee farm was a seasonal operation, when it shut down for the winter, we packed up and went south. The second winter in Florida, my father bought a truck. It is yellow above, it was pink when he bought it. (Much my mother's consternation, he described it as titty-pink.) Painted the corporate colors of the Miami based rental company he bought it from. Part of the deal included the color change.
The truck was for the farm. When we packed to go north that spring, packing was a dream, want to take both bicycles, no problem. The following October when we started to pack to go to Florida, my father simply said, pack whatever you want, I'll drive the truck. And so he did, for 5 or 6 years, they packed the big yellow truck for their winter vacations. When my family packed for vacation, they took everything you could imagine.
I don't take that much when I travel, but I have never understood how anyone could travel for two weeks with a single backpack, or 20 in-roller bag. But when you look at what my family packed for vacation, it makes sense.
Do you travel lite?
