Make sure you watch TechEd bloggers for packing tips.  Usually I tend to overpack, then get swag and have to pay a $50 surcharge to get my “HEAVY” luggage back to Kansas City. 

Another quick item you might want to pick up if you are a Diet beverage drinker.  Crystal Light has single packages that you can add to a bottle of water to make their drink.  John Alexander got me started and now I am hooked on the concept.  Usually at these events, the first thing they run out of is Diet Coke, and there is always plenty of bottled water.  This is a simple subsitute that you can leaving in your conference bag for those moments when there is no Diet Coke!  Also, check out Diet Coke with Splenda, that is some good stuff.

The crystal light idea is a great one! I haven't seen any packing tips... so do they give you a lot of swag at Tech*Ed? This is my first time going...

Drat, I don't have time to hit a grocery store tomorrow. That's an awesome idea.

# Diet Coke w/Splenda

I believe it's too sweet. I like most things with splenda but have grown so accustomed to diet coke the way it is that the splenda version tastes like syrup

I suggest a trip to the shipping depot...pack up that swag and ship it home! Much less than $50!

First TechEd...can't wait!
