Here's how to pack for your winter travels.

Winter 2018 is starting out cold and blustery for thin-blooded Carolinians, and most of us are unaccustomed to packing for it. 

Whether you're headed for a snow-cation in the mountains, or across the state to a basketball tournament, packing puffy winter clothing plus sports gear can leave little legroom in the car, even if it's an SUV. 

My top tips (scroll down for video):

  • Pack in thin layers instead of bulky ones, starting with a base layer
  • Use soft luggage instead of hard 
  • Use roll sacks and compression packs within your luggage

I wrote a free winter road trip guide geared toward families. It includes packing and road safety tips, car games, and more. Enjoy!
