Reusable Ski Packing Checklist ✔
I created this reusable ski packing checklist, so that next time I go, it will be faster to get my pack done. However, I know I haven’t posted in a while, but I’ve written drafts and getting content ready for you. This reusable ski packing list is way overdue. Also, my goal is to evoke a sense of order and organization on the day I leave on my trip. In other words, I have included links to some of the products I purchased that had helped me with my journey. Not to mention, if you do decide to buy something, I’ll get some commission, and you’ll get a chance to support me. Thank you for those that do buy via my links on this reusable ski packing checklist.
Consideration for Cab in Manhattan 🚖
Ask cab driver if they aren’t going to pick up their kid or something. In other words, you can plan to get to your destination on time. Also, if you’re in the city like me, find out from the driver where and what time traffic is an issue. Yet, before you leave, set an alarm on your cell phone to order the taxi. For example, give your self an extra half hour. Later on, I learned that Toyota Camry, Altima can fit a few ski bags and two people. Like you can install the ski bag if the driver pushes the seat back. Yet, if you get an UBER XL, you can provide 3-4 ski bags. Also, if you’re in the Manhattan around 3-9 pm, don’t cross West-side highway from 57, 42, 34 or 23 because it takes forever!
