    2-4-6-8. Here's what Badger took to the Beaver State.

    I fit all this stuff in my A45. How, you ask?

    By putting the stuff into these cubes, sacks, and pouches.

    And then putting the cubes, sacks, and pouches into the A45 (I didn't take the little pink steamed bun mascot; I just thought you might like to see him).

    Here's what I took, in the intensely anal-retentive detail you expect from me:
    Clothes [Large A45 Packing Cube]: a wool cardigan; a dress shirt and tie; four t-shirts; a hoody; a pair of pants
    Clothes [A45 Travel Stuff Sack]: three pairs of Icebreaker chonies; five pairs of socks (three to wear, and two to recycle at the Patagonia store)
    Toiletries [3D Clear Organizer Cube]: three little bottles of contact solution (I'm using up a few half-used bottles); toothpaste; hair wax; shower gel; moisturizer
    Toiletries [Small Double Organizer Pouch]: floss; tweezers; nail clipper; spare contacts; contact case; eye drops (two kinds)
    Pharmaceuticals [Mini Solar OP]: lots of drugs.
    Office [Cache, Mesh 3D OC]: 11" MBA; Hobonichi Techo; Field Notes; Sharbo X LT3 (multipen); Pilot RExgrip
    Cables [Travel Tray]: MBA charger; iPhone charger; retractable USB/Lightning cable; USB/micro cable; Jackery Bar; car phone charger; Guardian Light
    On the plane stuff [Side Effect]: Kindle; earbuds; XS Moleskine Volant; Fisher Space Pen; hand sanitizer; lip balm; mints; Advil; half a pack of Morinaga Hi-Chew; two hard candies (suspiciously named "Flowers' Kiss")
    Other random loose things: SoftStar shoes; Camper shoes; a belt; a blue pillbox with lots of drugs; bottles of painkillers; three travel packs of Kleenex; sunglasses; regular glasses; full-size deodorant (it's almost empty so I was like why the hell not); water bottle; box of stationery and a bookmark for my mom; Burnt Orange Daylight Backpack.

    To be continued...

    ...Continued

    Over the weekend, I ordered some beverages.

    And then I consumed some beverages.

    I also stumbled upon an Icebreaker Outlet store. They were having a 40-70% off sale. I didn't buy much, but I'm so glad I did, because they put the stuff in this insanely disturbing bag (which may very well deserve its own thread):

    Hobonichi Techo! I have an English version and I'm in love with it. I just drew today how much I love it. I'm in a Facebook group with 1,300 users about how much we all love it.
    I also have that same Aeronaut> Mine is steel on the inside.
    Also, beer. I love beer. Was one of those Deschutes Freshly Squeezed? That's my favorite.

    That bag is seriously scary. I can see why you needed all that beer.

    Someday I have got to go drinking with you; though on second thought, there is no way I could keep up. [I'm a wimp.] But as @pokilani said, I do see why you needed all these beverages to help you cope with that truly bizarre Icebreaker bag. We definitely need to discuss that in a separate thread; what the !@#$ ?

    There are so many little goodies buried in your anal retentive list as well: Flower Kisses, two mentions of "lots of drugs" AND a third mention of painkillers. I hope you're not ill! But then, when I look at the list of toiletries, cosmetics, and first aid items with which I travel, it does tend to include lots of "antis," such as antihistamines, anti-inflammatories, anti-fungals, anti-itch, etc.

    I agree about the utter fabulosity of the Aeronaut 45: I love my Aubergine/Wasabi version. I swear you could carry enough for an Antarctic expedition, and not be bent over to the ground when carrying it.

    Hope you had a wonderful visit with your mother! What bookmark did you give her?

    Those look to be in the Peu line. Campers are fantastically comfortable! I've walked 5-14 miles through NYC and London in a their ballet flats.

    I'm still mentally working out the best practices for using the Techo—I do so much "work" writing but I'd like to at least attempt to write some "not-work" stuff daily. The thing that I like best about the Techo is that it looks like a missal.

    I had so many beers!:
    1) Birdshot
    2) Fruit Stripe NW Pale Ale
    3) Zarabanda (the collab beer with José Andres)
    4) Fresh Squeezed (love this beer—all my attempts to get it in Wisconsin were thwarted so it was sweet victory)
    5) Roth IRA
    6) Hophenge
    7) The Dissident (which is a sour Brett wild-fermented beer, super skunky and tear-inducing)

    It's super charitable of you to think that I drank the beer after acquiring the bag, but I cannot lie: I had all of that the day before . . .

    Most of my drugs are the same as yours, designed to help me cope with the various environments that want to kill me—no anti-itch, thankfully. The bookmark I got my mom was the free one at Kinokuniya (#filialpiety).
