I invested in some clothing that is designed to be washed in the sink and guaranteed to dry overnight.  Hasn't failed me yet.

I used to have shirts like that in the 70's. All plastic, no cotton. ;)

Well, that's an idea. Depends on where we start, and if any charity / thrift stores are in the area.

Kidding! But such stores are common.

Technology has advanced. They are quite comfortable now and look good.

Jeeze man, if you fly through Atlanta feel free to have a lay over at my place. We can run your clothes through the wash.

Typical tanknet tempest in a tankette.  We will be spending two days outside Mobile which is more or less the mid point of the trip.  The hotels I've looked at all have guest laundry facilities, and there are numerous laundromats in the area.  So for those who don't want to pack steamer trunks clean clothes should not be an issue.

Thanks.  I'm watching the thread, anticipating developments.  Something to consider for a quick side trip in NOLA:

The first thing you learn on an I&I is that there are no 'quick' anything.  Firstly because the average tanknetter is not especially fast, and secondly because no matter how obscure the subject at least two of any given group of tanknetters will be deeply interested in it and want to spend four or five times the allocated time reviewing every placard, artifact and map.
