Winter sucks

I think I've forgotten how to pack light. When I travel for photography, my clothing fits on my body and into two tiny foot-long tubes. Now that I'm traveling again to an urban environment, I'm a little out of my element. A year and a half ago, I went to New York for 3 1/2 months and managed to pack all sorts of stuff into one (very large) suitcase. This time around, I have already stuffed two cases full of clothing and accessories: bulky winter crap, shoes, camera bags (2, stuffed with clothing and placed in suitcase), duffel bag (stuffed and placed in suitcase), comforter, pillow, towel, and who knows what else. I'm even bringing my TruWest Parka, which I have so far only worn on dive boats. Warmth over fashion... right? :)
