    Aeronauts & Large Cafe bag just arrived!!!

    Hello from Red Deer, Alberta, Canada this is my first time posting and just wanted to share with you guys that yes, we got our bags this afternoon!!

    A steel Aeronaut for me and a black Aeronaut and large black cafe bag for the wife, the cafe bag is already being put to good use by the other half as we speak (not even 20 min. after being delivered by UPS).

    All in all, very pleased with the quality of the bags and looking forward to using the Aeronaut next week on a 3 day work trip. We are off to Mexico for 2 weeks in May so it'll be great to see what we can do as far as smart packing goes, as I really want to try and wing it with the aeronaut as my only bag.

    I'm hoping to show the wife that it can be comfortably done (travelling light) as we are planning a trip to Spain & Portugal next year. Fingers crossed and she'll want to give it a go and travel with just her TB bags to Mexico.

    Happy travels!!

    A great start to convince your wife to travel ligiht - getting her the bags well in advance!

    There are several packing lists on the Forum here that may help. Plus check out the One-Bag website for tips and tricks on packing light too:

    Welcome Northbound.

    My wife and I spent two weeks touring the Canadian Rockies.
    Scenery was breathtaking and we enjoyed the trip immensely.
    Been there. Done that. Can't remember.

    Thanks guys, it's great to be here.

    Yes Maria getting the TB bags was a great move on my part , the wife's been raving about her Cafe bag so far so yeah, I like my chances.

    BPritchard, gorgeous scenery indeed. I can tell you the views take our breath away every single time we get out there on our camping trips.

    We usually camp in the area between Jasper and Banff along Hwy 11, it's a lot more quiet and we can count on spotting Black bears, moose and all the other critters, we just love it.


    I'll post some pics when I figure ou how to work this function.

    Thanks MtnMan,
    eventually will get some pics of them when "in action", in the meantime have a look some of my favorite shots from close to home.

    Cheers,
