After increasing my eBay feedback score by 5 points and using my $30 credit for opening a credit card (which I cut up afterwards) I am ready to go. So far I am packing the following:

1. Toiletry bag: Inside are various essentials such as: small first aid kit, bug spray, wet wipes, toothbrush, toothpaste, face wash, shampoo, Crew fiber, generic allergy medicine (loratadine), anti-malarial medication (doxicycline), sunscreen, face lotion, razor, shaving cream, and probably a few other small things I'm forgetting.
2. Prescription sunglasses and prescription glasses
3. Battery operated I-pod charger
4. I-pod
5. Full sized and face sized travel towels
6. Travel Pillow
7. Day bag
8. Inflatable pillow I got for $0.99 that I will probably dispose of after the flight to BKK.
9. Zip-Lock bags for clothing (separate clean and dirty bags)
10. Various guide books (LP Thailand, SE Asia on a shoestring, 1 map Bangkok, 1 map Thailand, phrase book)
11. Travel camera tripod
12. Blackberry GSM based so I will have a local Thailand phone number while traveling. It will also provide me with internet, e-mail, google talk, google maps, and more 24/7 virtually anywhere I travel. (for keeping in touch with Lindsay)
13. Silk bed liner (inside the orange stuff sack)

Not Pictured: Petzl headlamp (I seem to have misplaced it at the moment)
Camera (I had to use it to take the picture)
