@TontTib: TactileTurn Mover/Shaker (go for the copper for max patina)...

Oooh -- these are very tasty -- I really need a pen to go in the Leather Belt Pouch I just aquired from Saddleback Leather -- unfortunately even the short Mover/Shaker (~5") would be a tad too long -- ideally I need one that's 4.5" -- any suggestions?

@Rich: Just FYI, a Discworld reference/guide iOS app - Discworld: The Ankh-Morpork Map - just went on sale to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Discworld.

Eeek -- I only just now saw this post -- I will be downloading this app as soon as I get home this evening!!!

Disclaimer: I have an original Mover (dark blue aluminum) and it's awesome -- and I'm trying hard not to go for the brass (copper, bronze, and titanium are a little too pricey for me)

Traveling lightly is definitely a highlight of our times. What do people carry in their backpacks? That sure depends on where they are going. If you want to travel to the Galapagos Islands for instance you won't need your laptop too much, the nature in that area is just too gradiose and exceptional to be replaced with something else.

Actually I also independently discovered the big advantage of individually zip-bagged chargers this summer. Not only while travelling, but also for storage at home and in the lab.

We should spread this "invention" ! I have no idea why I didn't get the idea earlier!

@cshore0: All my stuff goes in my nice black Saddleback messenger bag too. One of the nicest things I own. I guess I have you to blame for that!

I certainly don;t mind accepring responsibility for that. The only problem when you get it is that it looks so new. These things look better and better the older they get and the more the see the world. I've been carrying mine around constantly since I got it, and it's only now starting to show a little "character" based on the bumps and knocks it's received.

In fact, it was just a couple of days ago that I emptied it out, took all of the straps off, and sat out on our back porch rubbing "leather liniment" into it to keep the leather supple and conditioned -- it's amazing how fast that stuff soaks in (I use the "Chamberlain's Leather Milk" that they sell on the Saddleback Leather website -- I think it's created by the owner's browther-in-law or something -- I like the sense of homor, like the label on the back that says "Do not drink or throw thsi product into your eyes, nor toss from a moving vehicle." :-)

This bag really is something to be handed down from father to son (or best friend if my teenage son doesn't stop being so "bolshy" :-)

@cshore: I find travelling much easier now I have slimmed down what I take to the absolute bare minimum. And my back feels much better too!

I hear you!!!  If I had a choice for what I travveled with, it would be my leather messenger bag with my iPad (& charger), headphones, and a paperback book. My problem is that I spend every day writing, editing, and posting articles -- along with creating graphics and processing images -- to do this I need a notepad PC, and having been caught short when I dropped my PC several years ago whilst on the road, I now carry two ... and so the story gos (and grows)

 

But I envy you!!!
