Travel gear for players

What's your packing list when going on a longer trip? The content of a man's suitcase who travels with the intention to also meet a couple of girls should be quite different from the luggage of your average traveler and backpacker.

Some differences I can think of:
  • More long pants and fewer shorts
  • Fewer tank tops and more well-fitted t-shirts
  • A pair of nice shoes and a pair of sneakers instead of just one pair of ugly trekking shoes
  • More socks because you are not running around in flip-flops all the time
  • Plenty of condoms and lube
  • Some nice dress shirts and maybe a blazer
  • A nice watch
  • Some gym equipment
Can you think of any other items that you mainly carry with you on your trips because of women?

I still travel light, usually out of a 35-L backpack that I can keep with me on a plane or on a bus. But yeah I'm in my 30s now so I try to look the part and dress like a man rather than a boy.

90% of my travels are work related so I often carry material with me (books, tripod, camera,...).
Outside of that and whatever the situation, I try to have with me clothes for the day that I don't mind about, nice ones for looking good for dates or work. Usually, I keep 2 sets of each and one pair of shoes for each situation at least. A Nice watch is a must for me also.
I usually take my razor, shaving cream, aftershave/ moisturizer, deodorant (impossible to find in most of the smaller village in China), the thing to cut my nostril hairs, perfume depending on where I go.

If you are really going to be hitting dating hard, then I would suggest a box of cialis or cialis like pills. If you go out partying and get shit faced drunk, you may need some help getting it up with the girl you see. If you are going on 3 dates a day and all 3 end up in sex and some of those 3 girls want multiple sex, you are going to want those pills. YOu only need to take a half a pill and you are good for like 5 days. at least i am. During some of my insane sprees of sleeping with women, I usually had some of this handy if needed.

I started popping those boner pills once in a while too, to add "some twist at the end of my punch" like UFC fighter Jon Jones put it.

Earplugs for loud nightclubs. I use these because they're discreet. http://downbeats.com

Me too. They are awesome and can have various uses:

- if you are too drunk to get a boner, just pop a pill on the way home
- if you are about to hook up with a really hot girl, pop a pill and fuck her so good that she will never forget you
- if you are really inexperienced and have problems with premature ejaculation (I used to have that a couple of years ago), just pop a pill, jerk off and then fuck the girl for much longer than you would usually be able to
- if you have multiple dates in a day, just pop a pill and you will be good to fuck multiple girls multiple times a day

I never tried Cialis because I need those boner pills very rarely. But I always have a package of Kamagra or Sidegra with me. They usually only work for a couple of hours and half a tablet is more than enough.

On that topic: which places do you know of, where you can buy boner pills? So far I have only bought them in Bangkok. Are they also available in South America or other cities in Asia?

You can buy a variety of Viagra and generic knock-offs in Chinese drugstores. Can't say for other places.

Can you buy them without a prescription in the US/Canada? I genuinely don't know.

Traveling light has its advantages but I think it's overrated. I used to pack enough clothing for 5 days and everything in 1 backpack. I enjoy it when going to/from airports, but the problem is that I'd run out of clothing and end up wearing the same thing days in a row. Laundry is a massive chore for me. If I only have 5 pairs of underwear and I forget to do laundry then I'm screwed if I have a date with a girl or want to go out. Packing heavy can be a pain, but I never regret it when I'm at my destination and have plenty of clothing to choose from. Personally I only pack light if I'm going on an adventure trip and don't expect to get laid. I also prefer staying in 1 location for several weeks-months at a time so it's pointless for me to bring 2 days worth of clothing.

Next time you're renewing your American passport, get a passport card, as well as the new passport book.

You can't use the passport card for international air travel, but you can use it to identify yourself as a US citizen, while keeping your more valuable passport book safe in your lodging.

Do laundry for hand in a sink before you go sleep. If you are in tropical latitudes it will dry over night.

Doing the laundry by hand is easier than you think. I did it a couple of years ago because I had no other choice and I realized it's actually very quick and easy. I've done it ever since. It takes me more time to go find a laundry service at a new location than it takes to rub the clothes on a sink and put it up to dry.

If I do the laundry while I have a Thai lady over at my place, she will usually kick me away and start doing my laundry lol. I'm not complaining.

I want to have 14 pair of underwear and socks.

That way you can easily last 1 week even with changing some days twice.

Same.

14 pairs of underwear/socks, then 14 t-shirts (no logos), 7-8 dress shirts, 5 pants, 2 dress shoes, 1 sneaker, 1 gym shoe, shorts, swimshorts, 2 sets gym clothes, toiletries. 

An item I haven't seen mentioned. Wahl magic clip cordless clippers. I charge up once and can use them for months (several haircuts), as I get tired of always gambling on a new barber to do a good job, or dealing with language barriers. I can also touch up the sides/back every week to stay sharp. Also bought a 10 and 12 clip, as I don't cut my hair too short on top. All sets seem to max out with an 8 clip. The clipper linked is very light (lithium batt) and no cord is obviously convenient. I don't do a straight buzzcut. Through trial and error (some pretty awful cuts at first) I learned to consistently give myself a solid haircut. Very useful life skill, and my most useful small purchase in the last year.

Finally, I keep a spare iphone setup, hidden somewhere, in case I lose my phone. Contingency.

I used to do laundry by sink by hand. IMO washing laundry by hand is an extremely low class experience that I try to avoid (not that I'm saying that you are low class or anything). Washing clothing by hand and placing it all around my apartment to dry is shitty. I don't want to bring girls home and have her see my underwear hanging over my chair to dry. These days one of the criteria for me when choosing an apartment or hotel is that there must be laundry in the building or next door. These are things I care more about as I get older. When I was 21 I didn't care.

That is a lot of clothes. I would only bring that much if I were to stay in a place for a longer time. When I am traveling, I usually bring half of what you listed. 7-10 pairs of underwear/socks, 4-5 t-shirts, 2-3 dress shirts, 2 pants, 1 nice shoes, 1 sneakers, gym clothes as you mentioned.

Regarding the gym clothes, I found that Vibram FiveFingers are perfect for traveling. They are very light, don't take up much space and you don't need socks when wearing them. I am also a big fan of the Merino Tank Tops. They never smell bad because they are made of wool. Instead of bringing 3-4 gym shirts, I just bring one Merino Tank Top that lasts for more than a week. There is also Merino underwear and socks but I never tried them.

I also always pack at least 1 microfiber towel. They are super light and dry very quickly. They also last very long, usually a bit more than a week before they begin to smell bad.

I see. Maybe I will think like you when I get older too. Right now I live in Thailand. All my clothes are thin fabric that dry easy and are quick to clean. It takes me literally 5 minutes to clean a few boxers and t-shirts. If I had lived in Europe I would probably not clean for hand as I would have thick clothes for the winter that takes some energy to rub. Tongue
