Resources and tips for short trips

I’m heading out tomorrow early evening for a day trip to Hong Kong. After leaving my job at the lab, something I haven’t mentioned to anyone other than my wife, I no longer have a work visa for Taiwan so I, like many others before me, am off on a visa run. If all goes well I’ll return with a visa entitling me to an extendable 60 day visa.
My usual method of travel is to simply grab a bag, throw some clothes inside, ensure my id/money is all set and run out the door. For a trip like this I become a planning fanatic –– I have lists all over my desk. My Travel todo and packing list is a good help.
Here are some resources I have compiled for a short trip such as this:
