Trip Packing List
We have baggage requirements for the Catalina Express and the Safari (aka HomeyG) Bus. The following is from the Catalina Express website: "Each passenger is allowed 2 pieces of luggage, no larger than 21×24x36 and weighing no more than 70 pounds each, to be stowed in the luggage compartment. In addition, each passenger may bring one carry-on that fits under airline style seating. Flammables or dangerous items are not allowed."  However, since Sawyer and I are taking care of packing food and tents, we'd like to ask everyone to only have 1 piece of luggage, that includes your sleeping bag and pad, and 1 carry-on. We suggest a duffel bag for your sleeping bag and pad, clothes, and personal items, and a day pack/bookbag for your carry-on.
From the Weather Channel, the outlook for next week is highs in the upper 70's to low 80's, lows in the low 60's, no chance of rain, and sunny skies.
