@DrFPGA: Your post made me remember this one...

Thanks for sharing -- that's great -- I once met "The Woz" (see Who Woz that masked man?) -- he's a real nice guy

@RichQ: Over at Microcontroller Central, one of our bloggers (Adam Carlson) has written about the portable development toolkit he keeps in a backpack...

I just bounced over to MCC to read this article -- very interesting -- thanks for sharing

@RichQ: I have a rolling computer case instead of a backpack...

That's "So 20th century, my dear!" :-)

Less Stuff

Max-

My backpack has much less stuff in it but there are some similarities...

1) Laptop with power brick and power cord

2) iPAD and power cord (Nice case from Design West!)

3) Headphones (and Microchip wireless speaker!)

4) iPod

5) Books (about as much weight as the laptop. Usually library books- we have an excellent library system here in Bellingham WA)

6) Pens and note pad

7) Phone and power cord

8) Flash drive (just one- 8G is enough for me)

9) Diet Dr Pepper Cherry (In outside pocket. Must have pre-security check-in drink.)

10) Trail Mix 

 

Anyone else have any favorite travel "comfort food" items?

Portable toolkit

Over at Microcontroller Central, one of our bloggers (Adam Carlson) has written about the portable development toolkit he keeps in a backpack. Seems his day job is not about electronics, so in order to work on his home electronics projects at lunchtime, he created this carry-along lab bench. Check it out at Create a Portable MCU Tool Kit

I have a rolling computer case instead of a backpack, but much the same kind of stuff inside: computer, power supply, mouse,  cellphone, USB chargers, cables (USB with interchangeable  client ends and Ethernet), paper, pens, business cards, coffee cards, travel club cards...

Not nearly as much fun stuff as yours, though, Max.
