Description:
I am spending 2 weeks in New Hampshire, way different them Alabama Decembers. I want to only have one suitcase (to not pay for extra stuff).

I still have to get up my courage to get on the plane. Long story.

What should I pack for short vacation to a very cold place? 14 days in New England? I live in Alabama and I own a winter wardrobe. I don't want to buy clothing I will not use again.

  • A sweatshirt and jeans?

    29%
  • My Barn coat and a sweater?

    29%
  • I do have gloves, a hat and sneakers?

    10%
  • Any ideas that will fit in 1 suitcase?

    if you are going to visit friends, maybe you could barrow some of there clothes? if not i would say layer layer layer, maybe some tights under pants and such.

    Definitely pack a coat, scarf, hat, and gloves. I live in CT and used to live in NH. It's very cold up here, and will be even colder for you since your from Alabama.

    Yes, and my friends live in the boonies, it is a 45 minute drive to the nearest small town, etc. My friend and her husband are about 5 ft tall, about 100 lbs. I am 5 8 at 260 lbs. I guess I could squeeze into something. I won't be traveling much, and I want to fit everyting into one bag, my purse will have my wallet and my medication, and my glucose meter.

    This is all considering I can get on that airplane in Atlanta. I have not told my friend, as I don't want to get her hopes up, and then disappoint her by not getting on the plane.

    I am going to call my doctor to see if he can give me a sedative so I won't freak on an airplane up and back. It is only a 3 hr flight.

    Thanks all.

    For outside you will definitely need a coat, hat and gloves or mittens and boots.   Bring as many warm clothes as possible and dress in layers.

    Just use your common sense and layer. I am from Alabama, too, and have never frozen to death when traveling up the east coast or the midwest.
