dorayme: Western Flyer by car for 5 days!

“I just returned home from a 5 day, 4 night, 3 hotel initiation trip with my Steel/Ultraviolet Western Flyer with backpack straps. I got to meet and had a lovely evening with Janine!

I needed to pack for casual weekend wear suitable for a church conference, plus some recreation clothes for the Zoo, outings with the kidlets and visits with family and friends. I am still new at minimalist packing, and I admittedly over packed. I also had along my Side Effect in my Cork Little Swift for my handbag, my Steel/Cork/Wasabi Imago for my “car” bag, and my Steel/Black Utility tote to bring along some spinning for any down time I could find.”

“What a great daybag when you need to layer on and off. Weather is so changeable in Iceland! The first pic, taken at the geothermal area ( boiling mud and steam vents) near Myvatn has a foggy area due to the rain and howling wind.”

See another photo by jannilee of the Synapse in Iceland in the TOM BIHN Forums.

ChrisG: Empire Builder and Aeronaut on a Cross-Country Train Trip

“As promised, here’s a review and some pictures from my recent cross-country train trip using my new Empire Builder and Aeronaut.

My daughter and I rode Amtrak’s California Zephyr from Emeryville, CA (across the Bay from San Francisco) to Omaha, NE. Well, technically we rode it past Omaha to Creston, IA because the Omaha station was closed due to the flooding on the Missouri River.

I received my new bags a few days before the trip. The EB is my new EDC bag for work, but the Aeronaut was pretty much purchased because of this trip.”
