Including the hotel in Manchester, there were 13 overnight stops. We didn't unpack - lived out of cases and it was absolutely fine! We are pretty light packers and learned to be even lighter after this trip - we took far less to Texas last year.

Main tip was a packing spreadsheet - column for each person so they know what to pack in the first place. We did a few underwear washes but apart from that, we just wore stuff more than once.

Thanks for trip report. Have bookmarked it and will start going through it in preparation for our trip to California. Day 8 onward will be especially relevant.
