I am weird for writing this…but then you clicked here so who’s weirder?
Going on your first mission trip? Not your first trip but just wanted to snoop? I’m leaving Friday for my first mission trip of? Summer 2011. Its a Group Workcamp in Littleton, NH. I’ve been working with Group Workcamps since 1994. My? guesstimate is that this is my 50+ mission trip with them.? This list contains those things that make the trip comfy, at least for me.?
For me, its ALL about a good night sleep. This is what I don’t want to survive without:? earplugs – for me and others, mini-fan, nightlight, short extension cord, book to fall asleep by, little water bottle, two emergency snacks,? Tylenol PM for the first night, fresh D batteries for the pump to my air mattress (Don’t store them in the pump during travel? since the pump can get jostled,? turn on and run the batteries down. Make that mistake only once.), fresh sheets, 2 travel pillows, new air mattress…guess that’s about it. Plus clothes and minimal toiletries/makeup.
What I don’t take? Jewelry.? Any? hair appliances. More than 2 pairs of shoes or? more than 3 pairs of pants. Anything that’s already on my phone. (No computer, alarm, calendar, address book, Bible, etc.)
Besides…a Walmart run is a mission trip staple if your trip is a domestic one.
