Thank you all very much for the advice. I am trying really hard to be organized and prepared ahead of time so that I won't over pack. I think mixing and matching clothes is the key. Is white really okay to wear to Alaska in early May? I wouldn't hesitate to wear white in the carribean, but just wondering about Alaska. Sounds a little daring, maybe I will give it a try. Thanks again for the great advice.
PS - Teresa, I think your name is great too.
