Jeff take some time to look through the old post here. There’s lots of hints. Start mailing things now that you don’t need right away. You should get them by November, but sometimes packages are delayed into December so bring necessary items.
Get a nice camera with lots of batteries. As a janitor with a day off in the middle of the week you may get to go on trips the rest of us won’t be able to attend.
Halloween costume. Send it down right away. Hopefully it arrives in time. The Halloween party is something everyone likes their first year.
Send down some really nice clothes to wear to the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. They are dress up events.
You will probably overpack warm clothes. Bring layers of lighterweight clothes. Ask the oldtimers what ECW gear to get at the CDC.
Hiking boots. Tennies if you go to the gym and run on the machines.
Most toiletries can be bought at the store, but bring anything special because they only carry generic stuff.
I’m sure I’ll think of more later.
