Keep it simple, and keep it light! Remember, you'll be the one lugging this stuff through airports and stuffing it into a rental car trunk. If you don't want to haul it, don't take it!
And there are more penalties to overpacking than just an aching back. Airlines charge $25 or more for bags weighing more than 50 pounds.
Almost all airlines now charge $25 - $50 just for checking your bag, too - often, the cheaper the ticket, the more you pay in other charges.
So if you want to save money, stick to one bag weighing less than 50 pounds.
