I'd Rather Pack Then Watch the Yankees Lately

Yup. It's come to that. I'd rather sit and pack my bags than watch the "Bombers" score 2 runs a series. Can Joba hit? Maybe Joba can hit. Throw him on 1st base and see what happens. How bad could that be? He couldn't do worse than Giambi in his golden thong, could he? At least I don't have to worry about them winning #27 while I'm in the bush. Bah.

Anyway so I've pretty much got everything I need and I'm gonna start throwing it all in bags over the next few days. I don't need to bring that many clothes with me as I can get most of what I need made over in Cameroon pretty cheap. The following is a list of everything I'm going to bring.
