Sometimes, you get to go places! And other times, you "get" to go places. Over the next two weekends, I "get" to go to some conferences. I leave for the first one tomorrow and will be getting back Sunday; I leave for the second one on the following Friday and will get back on the Sunday.
For conference #1, which is in California, I'm taking my Aeronaut. It's lightly packed, but I have more stuff than will fit comfortably in my Western Flyer (solution: Tri-Star, I know). I'm also carrying my Synapse. Here's what I'm taking:
Clothes: dress pants, 2x dress shirts, a tie (because I'm upping my sartorial game), two light sweaters, a bunch of T-shirts for casual wear, 2x shorts, unmentionables and socks, a pair of casual shoes, and toiletries.
And check it, guys: Gangnam Style t-shirt, courtesy of someone awesome (i.e., Katy):
In my Synapse, I'm taking the usual suspects. My MBP, headphones, notebooks, Clif Bars, a water bottle and sunglasses. Chargers and some odds and sods in the dyneema Organizer Pouches. I'll pick up a ton of paper at the conference, so I'll probably take an empty Large Organizer Pouch to corral everything.
Stay tuned for the next installment! And here's a gratuitous picture of the corgis frolicking in the sand pit at the dog park (wearing Iowa kerchiefs because, you know, they're fans):
