Bound for Taipei

Well, after a summer spent at home, it's time to hit the road again.  This time we're heading to Taiwan to look at the Chen Shan #1 Dry Cask Spent Fuel Facility.

The question has occasionally come up, "what doe the well accoutred bear take with him on a trans-Pacific trip?"

Here's Schlepp while packing (click to enlarge).  The key to the letters is as follows:

A.  Snacks, very important, especially on a 20+ hour trip
B.  DOP kit
C.  Jura single malt Scotch, 3 oz max allowed in carry-on
D.  Shampoo and conditioner, ditto
E.  Schlepp himself, most important
F.  Tempurpedic pillow, since airlines are now reneging on creature comforts
G. Umbrella, it's typhoon season in Taiwan right now

There you have it, the basic survival kit for the traveling bear.  Not shown are headphones, mp3 player, book, camera, and miscellany kept in the under-the-seat bag.  For the entire trip, we only have to deal with this one wheeled carry-on and the much smaller shoulder bag.

My husband found your blog some days ago.
We also have a travelling Schlepp, so it was good to see that he is not alone in the world.
He is 10 years old already, but last week I bought the "big brother" for him.
Here you can see the pictures of our bears if you are interested in.
Sorry, the post is in Hungarian.
I linked your blog, but if you do not feel comfortable with it, I can remove the link. (I know I had to ask before, sorry.)
So, the small Schlepp is our journey bear too, but we did not take too much pictures on our journeys about him.
We wish you and Sclepp nice journeys and good luck in the future!
Best regards from Hungary :-)
