On the Road With Rick Fox

What should you pack for a trip to the Bahamas?"A bathing suit, some flip-flops, sunglasses. My wife packs like three bathing suits. I bring a pair of tennis shoes and some shorts and T-shirts for exploring the island. For night, maybe two outfits for dining out and stuff."
What else is in your bag?"I never leave home without my BlackBerry. And a computer. I always have my computer with me. As for toiletries, I'm a Gillette Mach3 guy. I don't move without one of those. And I gotta have my dental floss, otherwise I go crazy. And Degree antiperspirant. I don't comb my hair, so I always carry conditioner from Jay Sisters in New York with me."
