    Taking the City of New Orleans from Memphis to Chicago in mid January for birth of first grandchild. I can carry on two bags plus small brief case size bag .I normally drive but because of weather and wife flying up a week before am taking the train and using public transportation in town. I hate the feeling of not having my "stuff" as my wife calls it with me. Can not have fixed blade knife ,folder over 3 inches ,firearms or any flammable liquids or matches on board. I am taking my rat 2 folder and a leatherman tool for blades. A small fire steel and butane lighter with p.j ,cotton sealed in plastic straws for fire. Stainless water bottle and cup with aqua tabs and an Esbit stove and fuel along with tea bags, instant soup, cliff bars, and snacks cover food. In addition to winter clothes am taking a snugpak poncho and liner with an inflatable pillow .A cheap headlamp and my edc flashlight complete my kit for this trip. Anyone have any suggestions for gear ect. for this trip?

    I would add a length of bank line myself I normally carry some rolled up in a bundle, if you prefer para-cord then make it para chord. Also a pt of bourbon will serve you well on a trip like that.
