Veteran flyers understand that hauling suitcases when flying is a burden. To check one in on a round way trip costs upwards of 70-80$, and can cause time and anxiety when dropping them off and picking them up at the airport and the hotel. Flying with a single carry-on eliminates this cost and provides you with the peace of mind that all of your items are on your person

==The Essentials==
* 45 L Backpack
* Packing Cubes
* Toiletry Bag
* Identification

==Trip preparation and materials list==
===Understand your own specific needs by asking the following===
*What do I currently use on a daily basis?
*'''How much weight am I comfortable with carrying on my back'''?
===Review Itinerary===
*Consider the climate and possible weather conditions of the location during the window of time you will be travelling.
*Consider if you can buy disposable items on the trip, or if you might want to bring some items back
*Know the geography of the location you will be travelling through.
===Account for TSA regulations===
*Understand that there are different regulations for carry-ons than with check-ons.
*See for more information regarding the do's and dont's of packing items deemed to be hazardous

===Possible Clothing List===
*Snow Pants

===Pack clothing by rolling the articles to maximize density===
* See for assistance on rolling.
===Place rolls into packing cubes===
===Place the cubes at the bottom of the backpack===
Do this as you will not need to have easy access to clothing. The bottom of the backpack also has more room than the top.

==Toiletry Bag==
===Possible Toiletries===
*Face wash
*2 in 1 shampoo
===Physically divide your toiletries in a way that seems the most sanitary===
'''TSA requires toiletry bags to be transparent'''
===Place this bag in an easy to access location if necessary during travel===

==Miscellaneous Items==
'''Identify and categorize locations for miscellaneous items on your backpack.''' Storage compartments for these items should be divided into two categorize, those for your items you will need to use while physically travelling, and those you will use while you are at rest
* The travelling compartments should all be accessible from the outside of the backpack. These can be in the form of “kangaroo pockets”, sleeves, or side pockets.
* The “rest” compartments can be accessible from the inside or outside of the backpack. A discrete packing cube should be used if its only available from the inside of the packing cube
===Active Item List===
*Phone Charger
*Voltage wall adapter
*Printed Tickets
===Passive Item List===
*Grocery/Ziplock Bags
*Camera Equipment
*Travel Speakers
*Insurance documents
*Laptop equipment


*'''Choose outfits wisely'''. It is important that you think wisely about what outfits you are going to bring on your trip. You want to avoid over packing and under packing clothing.
*'''Buy Certain items upon arrival''' In some cases it is better to pack light and just buy certains items once you get to your destination. For example, if you are traveling for a long period of time and you are having an issue with the liquids restrictions just buy the shampoo at your destination. You don't want to be forced to check your bag because you're one of your products in bigger than 3.4ounces/100mL
*''' Packing cubes are used to maximize and organize the space usage in your bag.''' A packing cube can be thought of as a dresser drawer in your carry on. Each cube holds similar items to make packing and finding stuff while you travel easier.
** The best packing cubes to pick. You want them to be made from stiff fabric, have at least two handles, and a mesh top.
** Organize your cubes by categorizing the items that you need to pack. For example if you are going on a trip where you will experience cold and warm weather, you can use one cube for all your cold weather clothes and another for your warm weather clothes.
