Practical Advice for the Obsessive Compulsive Traveler

Great article from Michael Lopp:

I started this piece at the San Francisco airport. I wrote the majority of it in the city of Leicester. I found the ending sitting in the park at Soho Square, and I finished it somewhere over northern Canada at 32,000 feet. That’s five days. That’s 5,654 miles and counting. This might not be your travel life, but these could be your travel tips.

I don’t get to travel much, but when I do, I follow much the same carry-on-only, crazy-organized strategy. It saves stressing over whether your bag made the connecting flight, whether you forgot to pack something, and — for those of us who prefer trains over planes — a smaller bag means you won’t worry that someone is diddling with your luggage at the other end of the train car. It’s just a better way to travel.
