Packing Light

I guess I've become a frequent flyer... but I sure haven't figured out how to pack light. I'm always so envious of those who can just take 1 carry on bag and not have to wait to check their bags. (Although I really don't like schlepping my bag to the gate... and I would never attempt it if I was traveling alone because I can't reach the overhead bin.) I don't consider myself high maintenance, but there are a few things that make being away from home a lot more comfortable. I'm even taking less photo equipment since I don't plan on being down on the field for tomorrow's game. I always take way too many clothing items. I guess the more you travel the more you pack conservatively. I am getting better, but I still have a long way to go.
