Like a Scout

Just like a good scout I want to Be Prepared.

As I get ready to head to East Gosford for the Central Coast Family History Fair tomorrow I am packing my kit for the day.Tomorrow I'll be a working girl on the Gould Genealogy/Unlock the Past tables at the Fair. I'll put the Flip-Pal mobile scanner through its paces and answer questions fairgoers may have about Geneacruising.

So what will I be packing?

Bottled water - I'll be doing a bit of talking so need to keep my whistle wet
Peanut butter sandwiches - I might not have time for lunch
Peppermints - need to keep halitosis at bay
My camera with spare battery - can't miss an opportunity to get pix for this blog
Business cards - although I'm usually too shy to hand them out
My pretty pink bag

Some old photos and an ancient family album - for demos
Flip-Pal scanner and its pretty pink bag - essential for demos
Spare rechargeable batteries and charger
Spare SD card - just in case
Small laptop - for downloading of photos
My Galaxy tablet - to use as an internet hotspot for my laptop

The bonus for me is that I will be able to chat with a lot of fellow researchers, buy some resources and hear some talks by experts.

Love the pink bag!! I blame the Girl Guides for my habit of overpacking and/or overthinking my luggage when I travel :-)
