That travel muscle memory

Getting ready for a flight

We fly out Thursday. It's been years since I boarded a plane. Looking back it seemed I was doing it at least once a year.

Some old reflexive muscle memory has been kicking in this weekend:

  • Music downloaded to the phone
  • Podcasts downloaded to the phone too
  • Books downloaded to Kindle
  • Making sure I have at least 2 charging cords (new ones since swapping to an iPhone)
  • Slip-on shoes to wear at the airport, with boots packed in the checked luggage
  • Dopp kit re-supplied
  • Medication portioned out

But now with the pandemic we have to navigate new documentation, masks, and COVID-19 tests.

I am dreading this trip.
