What to take to the conference?

One week before the NGS Conference starts, all of my worldly possessions will be packed up and shipped to El Paso.  I will be “homeless” until we get our new home in Texas.  I’ve decided that I need to come up with a checklist for what I need at the conference, otherwise it might get packed up!!

Here are some of the things on my list (besides the obvious clothes and toiletries):

  • My computer (although I’m not sure if I want to lug it around during the conference or simply use it in the evening in the hotel).
  • My phone and charger (and hopefully I can remember to actually charge my phone.  I’m so horrible at that.)
  • Snacks and drinks.
  • “Business cards” (even though I don’t have a business)  I thought it would be handy to share contact info with long lost cousins, fellow bloggers, and other cool people I might meet that week. Have any of you done this before?
  • A printed syllabus of the classes I’m planning on taking
  • Pens and paper to take notes.
  • Enough money to buy a Flip Pal.  I’m totally getting one.
  • My daughter.  She’s going to be attending with me.  I have plans to make her my minion. I’m not sure she knows this yet.:)
  • My family tree info (on my computer of course).  I think I might carry it on a flash drive too.
  • Comfy shoes

Any other suggestions from you seasoned veterans out there??  What’s in your suitcase?  What are the must haves?
