Your chargers
E-charges
Extra Chargers
Tertiary Charges
Extra batteries
Rechargeable batteries
Battery Chargers
Plus a bag of chips if you are going on an airplane (DO NOT OPEN THEM BEFORE/WHILE ON THE PLANE)
You will see why you need that last item on the list, when the time comes.

Programmers, they may be small, quite and easy to miss while leaving for Atlanta but its hard to do anything robotic without them, I've tried

iPod Mini (I don't care if it's ancient, it plays music and the battery lasts)
Nintendo DS w/ Metroid Prime: Hunters and Mario Kart DS
Cell Phone with plenty of minutes
CHARGERS!!
Bathing Suit
Various combos of pants and shorts
The two team T-Shirts I'll be swapping inbetween throughout the 5 days
Sweatshirt for the plane and the social
Thumbdrive for swapping code
Duct Tape Wallet
MONEY!!
Gracious Professionalism
Pre-E3 Tension with no internet for 5 days
Scouting papers from SBPLI
Blank scouting papers
Whiteboard with Red, Blue, and Black markers
Quarters for arcade machines at hotel
Enough internal and stored energy to last 5 days

Re: Essential items to pack for Atlanta?

All though 114 isn't going to nationals this year, team 100 has been kind enough to let me bunk with them as an "honorary team member". Mabye I'll even get a famous orange and black Dr. Suess hat. 971 did offer too, but bureaucratic hold ups prevented me from staying with them.

So anyways, don't forget the XBOX! I've been informed that 100 is gonna be doing some hardcore Halo playing, and I look forward to getting in on the action.

Hope to see everyone at the webhug and pack light!

Lightbulb Re: Essential items to pack for Atlanta?

All of this I found essential at the regional competition, or at one point really wished I had brought:

-Machinery's Handbook
-extension cord
-colored sharpies (for scratches on painted parts)
-flashlight
-small broom and dustpan (or better yet, a shop vac)
-extra long zip-ties
-7.2 V backup battery charger
-extra tether cables
-paper towels
-bottled water (the team will love you!)
-Lexan sheet assortment (to cover up vulnerable components)
-First Aid kit
-1.5" hole saw (hopefully you will never need to use this, but if you are over 120 pounds...)
-SCHOOLWORK


Have you hugged your programmer today?

Wait.. what? Do they do what I think they do, and will I get blamed for making a loud noise when it happens..
LOL I don't think I'll personally be the one doing that. LOL

Thanks for the suggestions people, and keep them coming. I have to do my shopping & packing this weekend, and Monday and Tuesday nights.

See you all in Atlanta!!!

Re: Essential items to pack for Atlanta?

This year's packing is going to be very different for me (I've always packed a suitcase full of games, pit displays, goodie bags for the students, team buttons, etc. in my previous years as mentor on a team!)

This year I need to remember to bring:
NEMO buttons
NEMO CDs
NEMO business cards
clipboard
sharpie
Vex lanyard
Vex earrings (if I finish them in time!)
My specialty buttons- "I support CT FLL", "I Found NEMO", "Ask me about FIRST", my CD profile button, n.e.rd. button, 5-yr FIRST volunteer pin
My shirts - NEMO, n.e.r.d., RAGE Travel shirt (I'm traveling with them)
Money to buy something at LogoLoc store
CD raffle tickets
Sudoku book for on the plane
Other clothes, toiletries, etc.

I think instead of trying to clone, you should triplicate
NEMO, Vex, FLL, n.e.r.d., FIRST, RAGE, CD
no make that - septuplicate (is that a word?) -more suitcase room and it would give Big Mike something to do trying to find all of you to hug.

Re: Essential items to pack for Atlanta?

I think I may just sew the front of one shirt to the back of another and then do the same with another set and sew THAT into the inside of the first set and make it reversable. Then I'd have 4 shirts in one and could just switch it around when I needed it! (how's that for thinking outside the box?)

I'm sorry I just can't help myself -
that would be a really n.e.r.d.-y shirtbox.

As is true for any trip, for Championships I would bring half the stuff I think I need and twice the money.
