I am a am overly light-packer when it comes to packing for my project trips. I went as far as leaving a 12″ ruler and a small bag of crackers at my friends house last night because I wanted to bring only the necessities … which is why the series of events over this past hour are so funny. On our way to the airport, Melissa’s tire became flat half-way through the Queen’s Tunnel. We got out of the tunnel, started to change it on the side, got in trouble with the police, moved the car, called a car service to rush me to the airport and a mechanic to help Melissa. It all of the crazy rush, I forgot to take off my HUGE winter coat! So now, the “most careful packer” is going to 100-degree Haiti with a parka!
