Dave!Honestly, I don't copy absolutely everything Neil does in his blog... it's just that he's constantly finding really cool things to blog about. And now he's run across a truly inspired meme: what's in your gadget bag? (which reminds me of the what's in your glovebox meme). I'm not saying that my particular bag is something special, but I do haul a lot of crap around with me, so this might be interesting to some...


An inventory of what is accommodating me on a typical trip...

  1. My pirate flag, in case I feel the need to plunder and pillage.
  2. My trusty Helly Hanson cap, which has been around the world with me for years.
  3. GameBoy Advance battery charger and earphones.
  4. Spare disposable AcuVue contact lenses.
  5. Canon EOS Digital Rebel battery charger.
  6. Samsung mobile phone charger.
  7. Canon Powershot battery charger.
  8. Glasses (in case I lose my contact lenses).
  9. Plastic packaging tape.
  10. Canon Powershot Digital Elph camera.
  11. My passport.
  12. Spare flash 512MB memory card.
  13. Apple iPod in protective travel case.
  14. Samsung mobile phone.
  15. Canon fixed 50mm lens (the pricey f/1.4 version).
  16. Apple iSight video conferencing camera.
  17. Nimrod gadget organizer pack.
  18. Cords and cables (3 FireWire in various lengths, 2 Ethernet, iPod charger, telephone, USB, and audio out).
  19. FireWire flash memory card reader.
  20. Apple Titanium PowerBook 1GHz.
  21. Circular polarizing filters in 50mm and 77mm and a lens-cleaning brush.
  22. Oakley polarizing A-Wire sunglasses and case.
  23. Apple PowerBook power adapter.
  24. Nintendo GameBoy Advance.
  25. Nintendo GameBoy games (currently Pokemon Leaf Green, Final Fantasy Tactics, Kirby Advance, and Advance Wars 2).
  26. Booq BP3 Backpack Bag.
  27. (in front pocket) Spare PowerBook battery.
  28. (in front pocket) Travel necessities kit (aspirin, band-aids, Imodium, Pepto Bismol, tissue, etc.).
  29. (in front pocket) Tube of Carmex and a pack of Altoids Cinnamon Breath Strips.
  30. (not shown) Canon EOS Digital Rebel camera with a 16mm-25mm wide-angle zoom lens and 1GB IBM Microdrive storage card... which is taking this photograph.
  31. (not shown) Sharpie permanent fine-tip marker, ink pen stolen from the Hilton Towers New York City, notepad, and an AK-47 Assault Rifle with courtesy silencer.

Yargh. No wonder my pack is so heavy. And now I'm off to Seattle, continuing onward to Salt Lake City for a few days.

    What a load of stuff to carry round. Still room in there for a Mars Delight I hope!
