Traveling to Mexico for three months will require a few things, which would need a suitcase right?
I plan on bringing one full sized suitcase and some additional equipment, and since I’ll be driving there, I won’t have to worry about losing them on the trip down! Since one of my stories that I would follow provides easy access to El Paso, TX, certain items may be replaced as needed.
4 pairs shorts (summer heat in northern desert, summer heat in southern jungle, either way they’re a necessity)
3 pairs of pants (nights can be chilly, plus a pair of khakis or dress pants)
6 shirts (2 lightweight button-downs [Columbia], 3 t-shirts, 1 dress shirt)
3 pairs of shoes (Chacos, Hiking boots, dress shoes)
10 pairs of socks and boxers (to be replaced as needed)
2 hats (baseball & boonie hat)
swimsuit (working on the Río Bravo may tempt me to take a dip)
sunglasses (one cheap pair, one awesome pair)
Laptop & Charger with computer bag and phone charger
Nikon D60 (owned) 18-55 mm lens, 70-200 mm lens
Camera bag with battery charger, 2 8gig memory cards, extra battery, extra lens covers, filters, etc.
Olympus WS 600S recorder and spare batteries
10 pens (wal mart run/costco stockpile may be necessary since I cannot hold on to a pen for more than an hour)
Metamucil fiber powder
Bandages-gauze, band aids, blister skins, ace bandage, medical tape
Alcohol swabs/hydrogen peroxide
IB profin, anti-diarrheal meds, anti-nausea pills, anti-malaria pills
Purel (a lot)
Epinephrin pen (allergies)
$200 cash emergency fund (kept in locked glovebox or safe at destination)
