Most valuable possessions, and any uptight pretensions you have. - Sep 26, 2016
Entitled attitude, winter coat (and all other winter garb), white shoes (cause they will get DIRTY). - Apr 26, 2016
Winter clothes, high heels, inflexibility, expectation that your car, clothes, or belongings will come through unscathed. - Jan 6, 2014
anything that you would be devastated if it were to be stolen, broken, ruined, lost, or pillaged. Also leave behind your belief that this will be Africa lite. It is a hardship post. - Nov 24, 2012
Warm clothes. - Feb 13, 2012
winter clothes - Nov 13, 2011
Skis - Aug 4, 2011

Credit cards. - Jan 21, 2009
