Do you buy new underwear every time you travel?

Ok, so this entry is a little...teeny.....tiny ribbing on a friend ( you know who you are), who every time she has traveled goes out and buys new underwear and socks. She must have the hugest collection of underwear know to mankind. I think she also buys new socks. When asked she says just in case you never know....Know what? What does she know that I don't? Are there secret undie police at airports? Heck a few dirty holey pair might just be what the doctor ordered for those who get a kick out of going through others luggage.

Now, I have to be honest, I have my own travel quirks too. I overpack...I overpack to the point of thinking of every scenario that might maybe happen and being prepared for it.  Yup, it might snow in Jamaica, or ou never know you might need that 3rd bathing suit...Yup, I am an over packer!

Another friend brings a ton of gadgets to immortalize the trip. Underwater camera, regular camera, SLR camera, flip video camera, cell phone...and then hardly ever uses it for other than a few pictures. Lets not mention the assortment of batteries and cords that accompany all the equipment.

No wonder the airlines have been charging for bags, we want to bring all the conveniences of home with us on vacation, even when we don't use them.

I won't even go into what our kids want to bring.....stuffed animals, pillow, favorite blanket, favorite jeans...blah blah blah......

So, what are your crazy travel rituals? Do you have any? You guys are a quiet groups, I feel like I am talking to myself??? There is an echo in this room does anyone else but me hear it????

ROFL, I always pack an extra pair of sneakers 'just incase' you never know when you might get caught in a downpour and then your shoes are soaked! Since I have a size 10 shoe, they take up lots of space! Oh and always more than one bathing suit, 'cause I can't stand putting on a wet bathingsuit. I think that's enough quirks for now :p

lol, I'm the same way as your friend. I don't buy new socks, but I always buy new underwear when I travel. I don't ever want it to be a situation where airport security opens my luggage and sees old looking underwear. So I keep them new... it's not necessary but it's just a mental thing that makes me feel comfortable.
