Packing List

What you pack will vary on when and where you're going in the USA but don't forget to use Transportation Security Administration (TSA) marked locks for your luggage as this will allow them to open it for inspection with a TSA master key, while non-TSA locks may be cut from your bag, destroying the lock.
