    I am attending this year and I was wondering if anyone has any advice for packing and stuff like that. Also can anyone who already attended or is certain of themselves, can we bring tan jeans or are they looking for slacks for the daily dress pants???

    I'm not sure I ever saw tan jeans while at SLS. Most of the guys wore khaki shorts with the occasional khaki pants while the girls wore whatever those pant-like things are that only go down to your shin area. You can tell I'm very well-versed in women's fashion. . .

    As far as advice goes see the thread I started last year after getting back for SLS:

    They're capris Jake :p

    And yea, definitly go for shorts if possible. I mean, bring both, but with the weather, you'll be happy you brought shorts so you won't die of overheating

    Don't tell anyone, but I wore the same pair of shorts everyday. Ha. I flew up in khaki shorts, left in the same pair.

    I think I received a packing list in the mail last year though. Take extra compression shorts (male?) and follow that list and you'll be set.

    Pack lots of extra socks! You will need at least 2 pairs per day, because you'll do PT in the morning and then shower and change for the rest of the day.
