My mom Dorinda has a couple of travel tips that will be relevant for those of you about to embark on your journeys:
1. Pack a cheap egg crate for your bed. It doesn't take up much room - she will leave it here when we leave - and it has made a BIG difference making her bed softer. Wish I would have thought of it!
2. Don't just bring 2 shirts and 3 pairs of pants. You will get tired of wearing the same thing over and over!
