BB SUNDAY, MAY 18, 1997 LIFE THE SAUNA JOURNAL T TRAVEL The right stuff Smart packing can get travelers through airports in a jiffy By SUZANNE S.

Relax and enjoy your vacation while Cindy's PetCare Plus takes care of your pet/home/plants. $6.50 One daily visit $12.00 Two daily visits $16.00 Three daily visits Committed to Excellence in Pet Sitting DENVER — It used to be easy to spot flight attendants and airline crew members. They were the ones wheeling compact suitcases behind them in the airport. Increasingly, though, business travelers are rolling the same sort of bags across the concourses of America. Not having to check baggage saves time and hassle for people on the go. But how do you get everything you need for a multi-day trip into a bag that must fit into an overhead compartment or beneath the seat in front of you? The key is in simplifying , says Robyn Wackerli, a Denver image consultant who has conducted seminars on packing and often packs her clients for business trips. Most of her clients are women, but the advice she offers often applies to both sexes. The mistake most people make is in taking everything they think they need, Wackerli says. "You don't need that much stuff; you need the right stuff." The right stuff is clothing in transitional weight fabrics — materials that won't add to the swelter of a summer day or the chill of an air conditioned meeting room. "One of biggest problems with travel is trying to anticipate weather changes," Wackerli says. "You might leave here in a heat wave and might be going into a rainstorm, or colder climate." For summer, she advises taking short sleeve tops as well as a long sleeve lightweight cotton or silk sweater. The long sleeved piece can be layered on and off as temperatures change. The first priority in planning a travel wardrobe is to select a neutral color — black, brown, navy, gray or khaki — that will serve as a foundation. "That way you don't have to take two pairs of dress shoes, two belts and bags," Wackerli says. She recently packed a client for a 10-day trip using a short black skirt, long black skirt, black jacket, simple knit dress, khaki pants, a couple of T-shirts and several blouses. The tops are used to give a hit of color to an outfit. "Rather than buying a chartreuse suit, buy a T- shirt," the consultant says. "It looks fresh and modern without being trendy." Accessories included black walking shoes, black dress pumps with a patent leather toe, lace-up oxfords, a black belt, a small black handbag and a travel tote. Simplify jewelry, too Simplify jewelry choices, too, Wackerli says. "Decide on silver or gold and pearls so you don't SZIJ Most travelers pack more than they need for Wackerli of Denver (left) advises: Take clothing have to drag all your jewelry. Try to have a common thread so that everything is somewhat linked together. If your shoes have a gold buckle, wear gold jewelry." Those who exercise need to include workout gear, or if you just want to get in some long walks, pack black leggings, a long T-shirt and walking shoes. If it's been a while since you bought luggage, it's an investment worth making. A decent suitcase, with sturdy wheels and a handle that locks open, can make travel a much more pleasant experience. Wackerli likes a style by Tumi that has a garment bag that can be zipped on and off. She recommends checking out different types of bags and seeing which have the features you need. No matter what or why the trip, the goal is to be comfortable, confident and independent, she says. "You want to be able to stride through an airport in shoes with comfortable soles. I see some women in spike heels hobbling along, or having to wait for someone to help them with their bags. It's so sad. We have so much latitude to move forward, we shouldn't be held back."

The campaign is a result of focus groups conducted by the Orlando/Orange County Convention and Visitors Bureau that found the over-55 crowd was an untapped source of repeat visitors. Of 33.2 million U.S. tourists in 1995, less than 15 percent of out-of- state visitors were between the ages of 55 and 74. By comparison, 65 percent were aged 25 to 44. "Seniors have a lot of leisure time and they usually can afford to spend the money," said Jim Hampton, a spokesman for Universal Studios. If you ever wanted to cruise the Caribbean, NOW IS THE TIME!
